  • Researchers
​​Family-controlled firms continue to thrive and currently make up 19% of the companies in the Fortune Global 500 and an estimated 80% of businesses across the globe. With their increasing presence and stronger influence on the global economy, there’s a heightened need for them to adapt to new business models while addressing the unique leadership and succession issues family-controlled firms face, which are more critical now than ever before.

Our global, cross-sector team offers customized strategic solutions to family-controlled firms that are coping with transitions and the distinctive situations they face. Through our decades of experience, we have defined the key offerings and actionable insights on what sets the best family-controlled firms apart, and we share those insights with our clients. We also address the balance between the needs of the company and the level of involvement of the family.

Board Advisory Services

We advise on corporate governance for family-controlled firms.

Our Board Advisory consultants partner with family firms in their journey starting with hiring an independent chairman followed by building out a board that can balance long-term family shareholder interests with short-term advice on governance and strategy. Our consultants identify the range of competencies, experiences and perspectives needed so that the board can serve as a true strategic asset to management while reflecting the company’s agenda in terms of composition, diversity and effectiveness.​

CEO Succession

We help companies map their future success.

We help family firms with founder, intergenerational and family to non-family transitions by identifying and developing the best possible individuals to drive the organization’s strategic objectives.

We find the right match for your needs.

Our global team of consultants has decades of experience working with family firms to identify and groom talent for the C-suite, executive team and family office.

We help companies define, build and develop best-in-class executive teams.

Our team of experts includes Ph.D. psychologists and C-suite-tested management consultants who employ rigorous techniques and behavioral interviewing tactics to help family firms better understand the behavioral and leadership traits of family members and non-family executives that enhance or impede their performance.

Culture Analyst™

We help companies create cultural change.
