Our Family Business History
Some people might say that family business is in our blood others might say that it is our lifeline. Either way it is definitely our history. Our families have been involved in family businesses for four generations. It is both a very challenging and gratifying experience on many levels. Our great grand parents were farmers, like their parents. When they arrived in America they began to form their own businesses.
Their endeavors started with farming and merged into building trades to construction and then real estate. From there the family went on to negotiating union and management contracts with ATT to mediating business and family disputes. Over the decades, our families have been involved in various family businesses focusing on construction, medical facilities, legal and medical practices, insurance industries, manufacturing, union and management negotiations, restaurants, hospitality, banking, finance, accounting investments, consulting and many more.
We know first hand that the facts of keeping a family business together through the generations is a difficult assignment. Yet it is worth the trouble. Very often the owners or other family members view families businesses as an extension of the family or an entity unto themselves. This makes changes in management, improving business systems, passing control to the next generation, or selling a business or unit even more difficult.
When a family business is loved and cared for will grow and thrive. Left to its own devices it will deteriorate over time. It needs new blood, different generations structure and supervision and extensive teamwork. Apart from the day to day operations, family businesses need a long-term personal and professional strategies, specific short-term goals, conflict resolution mechanisms and succession plans and a guarantee to make it happen.
That is we begin our task together of confronting family business challenges with a diverse set of skills of the family members at familybusinessmediationservices.com.
