Current Peer Groups


This peer group is for people who are running a family-owned business. While the title of the individual is not important, he/she must be clearly in charge of company operations.

Future Leaders

If your parent or parents are still considered the company head but you are in a position of future leadership within the family-owned business, this peer group is for you.

Key Non-Family Leaders

If you hold a top management position (CEO, CFO, COO, HR Manager, Line Manger, General Manager, etc.) within a family-owned company but are not a family member, you encounter unique dynamics. Learn from others who share that role in this peer group.

“The other members provide a great sounding board for working through issues large and small and perspective about the challenges and joys that all family businesses face.”
