The Art of Selling the Family Business
While family businesses are an important and dynamic part of the global economy, their survival statistics are grim. In fact, a mere 30% of family-owned companies make it past the first generation. So, when you’re ready to take the leap, it’s essential to do it right. Now, award-winning CEO Jonathan Pellegrin has cultivated a fool-proof formula for transition success.
“Exploring the landscape and being informed about the process beforehand is essential. Most of the time, family business owners are not proactive in the transfer of ownership before it’s too late,” says Pellegrin. “But there are some there are some tangible actions to take, so you don’t crash and burn”
Here are just a few things that you will learn in his book:
- His 3-step checklist for every transition, including critical actions to take for selecting the best leaders
- How much time is necessary for a successful transition
- Why the retiring leader should completely cut ties with the company once the transition is complete
- His conventional model of the evolution of family owned companies
