Areas of Expertise

  • Governance
  • Multi-Generational Families
  • Ownership Development

My approach always begins with learning from family members and appreciating all of the perspectives involved. Family businesses are complex, and integrating all the viewpoints is an opportunity and challenge. I like to give families the guidance and insight so that they can develop their own solutions.
