Reviews

"This book is an outstanding collection of "best practices" as well as many new concepts. It both validated existing methods and introduced fresh ideas for the Advisory Board of my 102 year-old family business." - Ron Saslow, President & CEO of Hu-Friedy Manufacturing Company "Several years ago, as Welch Allyn struggled to transition from the 3rd to the 4th generation of family ownership, John Ward visited our company, and personally advised us through the next phase in our evolution as a family business. Now, John has collaborated with Jennifer Pendergast and Stephanie Brun de Pontet to produce a book detailing the benefits of evolving the family business in both ownership and governance structure, to ensure that the family business can not just survive, but thrive, for many generations beyond the founder. Their first hand experience can provide valuable insights to any family business concerned with smooth and successful transitions between generations. As my company celebrates our 95th of family ownership, we are grateful for the lessons shared by John, Jennifer, and Stephanie in this book." - Eric R. Allyn, Welch Allyn, Inc.

"An active independent board is the single greatest resource for the modern family business and have become essential to the success of family businesses in our globally competitive world. This guide shows how to blend committed family members with talented non-family directors to produce an effective, independent board and flourishing family business. Great boards sustain great companies." - Lanse Crane, Chairman and CEO of Crane & Co.

"One of the significant weaknesses in a family business is the lack of the type of honest, objective feedback which is provided by a thoughtfully constructed Board of Directors. These authors have provided an extremely valuable resource for family business owners which not only provides the rational for utilizing boards but the equally important "how to" implement this process." - Lee Hausner, Managing Director First Foundation Advisors
