The Excellence in Family Business Awards & Executive Insights: Family and Nonfamily CEOs

  • Sentinel Hotel 614 SW 11th Ave Portland, OR 97205 (map)

Panels of experienced family business executives and professional advisors will discuss the topic of family and non-family CEOs in the family enterprise.

According to the 2017 PwC family business survey, 61% percent of family firms are planning to bring in external managers to help run the business. Sometimes that means going all the way to the top and bringing in a nonfamily CEO. On November 15th, the Austin Family Business Program will present one panel of top professional advisors and another panel of family business executives to share their insights and experiences related to the topic of "Family and Nonfamily CEOs." 

Family business shareholders, professional advisors and consultants, and next generation family business leaders should not miss this opportunity to network and learn from some of the top businesses in the northwest.
