7:30 - 8:00 am | Registration and continental breakfast
8:00 - 10:00 am | Program


Whether by necessity or design, family owned enterprises may find themselves looking outside of the family for leadership. However, bringing in a non-family CEO can result in significant change to the way the family ownership group operates.

Please join our panel of non-family CEOs and family member officers and directors:

  1. Jean Barber | family member & Vice Chair of Bartell Drugs
  2. Terry Judge | non-family CEO of Hotstart
  3. Stan McCammon | non-family CEO of Joshua Green Corporation
  4. Mary Morrow | family member & Director of Nelson Legacy Group

 Among the topics we will cover:

  • What considerations should a family shareholder group have when deciding between a family member CEO versus a non-family CEO?
  • What experience, skills and ability must a non-family CEO candidate bring to the table to be successful?
  • How can the board of directors of the business help the non-family CEO succeed?
  • How will the non-family CEO interact with the family?
  • What recommendations would a non-family CEO have for a family considering their first non-family CEO?
