Center for Family Business Excellence
The EisnerAmper Center for Family Business Excellence is dedicated to helping guide and support you through the full range of challenges and transitions that a family business will face over the course of its lifetime. If you have ever wondered what to do with your business the day you no longer want to be in control, or if you are curious about finding ways to both build business value and ensure its long-term sustainability or you simply want to know where to go for more information and support, we are ready to help.
We focus on the key areas that most family businesses will need to grapple with:
- Ownership/Leadership Transition, which includes exit strategy planning for the owners and senior leaders, estate planning, retirement or lifestyle planning and preparing the next generation for leadership. A transition in leadership, rather than destabilizing the company, can be an opportune time to redefine roles, energize new leaders and set the company on a healthy course for sustainability and growth.
- Business Transition, including strategic planning, leadership team development, succession planning, hiring talent and performance management. We help you put in place the appropriate plans and then coach and facilitate as you implement your plans.
- Family Transition, which covers family governance, communication and conflict management, philanthropy and legacy building. Change in the family business can impact both family members working in the business and those family members who are external owners or simply connected by virtue of marriage. Either way, we help everyone navigate through growth and change with a foundation of healthy communication, planning and governance.
