Family Business Transition Planning

You know family businesses are different. The question is why? We all know family businesses are unique and have their own set of challenges. But why is this?

I have worked in my family business, Celentano, for over 25 years and now I help family businesses and teach undergraduate and graduate levels of Family Business Management at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Family businesses in all industries are in need of successfully overcoming the ever present competing forces of family, business and ownership and executing sustainable business strategies that serve the current and future generations well.
