Seventy percent of all businesses are family businesses in the United States, but only two-thirds survive past the first generation. For too many family businesses, while it may be a given that children will become the next leaders, they don’t receive the preparation or training to succeed. In his book, family business expert Henry Hutcheson CMC CFBA offers any organization the roadmap to ensure succession and prevent failures. He debunks the myths of family businesses and illuminates the best practices — to take a family business from startup to a well-established, long-standing company. Hutcheson has 25 years of experience in business management and global family business consulting across a range of industries and is a veteran of a family business himself. He’s a frequent corporate and university speaker, as well as a columnist and writer for the News & Observer, Charlotte Observer, Nursery Retailer, The State, and Family Business Magazine.
