Helping Family Businesses
Prosper Across Generations®


JAN_DH_KBR_Group_Lo_ResThe Family Business Consulting Group was founded in 1994 to create a community of practitioners who are passionate about the needs of family firms and through shared learning and collaboration, dedicated to being the best in the field. Located across North America, our team of over 24 consultants is the largest and most experienced group of its kind, with deep educational and real-world expertise in disciplines like strategy, management, finance, governance, psychology, leadership development, communication, conflict resolution, succession planning, and family education.

Like many of the family businesses that we serve, our intention is to perpetuate The Family Business Consulting Group across generations by constantly identifying and attracting outstanding professionals and continuously facilitating their improvement while reinvesting in our organization, methods and intellectual capital.

This is our past, our present and our future.

“Joining FBCG feels somewhat like joining a big family. The members of FBCG are welcoming, caring and supportive. Anytime I have reached out for support, there are numerous and quick responses. The FBCG environment in general is truly a rare find - you are performing your craft with others who are passionate, bright, and caring about the work, the clients and each other. They are as invested in your success as they are in their own.”

Wendy Sage-Hayward, Senior Consultant


Collaborative Culture and Team Environment

Our consultants agree that one of our firm’s greatest benefits is working and interacting with FBCG colleagues. Four times each year, our consultants and staff meet in Chicago to discuss cases, create new tools, share research findings and develop strategies to better serve our clients and colleagues. The 1.5-day agenda and content are developed by a rotating small team of consultants with a wide range of experience and expertise. This planning model encourages fresh perspectives and opportunities to learn more about each other.

Additional collective projects include:

  • Teaming on client cases
  • Teaching classes, facilitating workshops and presenting webinars
  • Conducting research, authoring books and writing articles
  • Curating group knowledge and experiences
