CEOs

This affinity 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 Affinity Group

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 affinity group will be of particular interest.

Key Non-Family Leaders

If you hold a top management position (CEO, CFO, COO, HR Manager, Line Manager, 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.
