Change of generations

Family-owned enterprises can face challenges when the next generation comes to take over.

The goal is to maintain a sound business while preserving good family relationships. Several heirs are often involved, and uncertainty may prevail about future ambitions for the enterprise. Where the next generation is concerned, there may be different levels of engagement, expertise and interest as well as varying opportunities to participate actively. How far the owners want to secure continued growth and new commitments, or wish to achieve value preservation, will influence organisation and staffing.

We meet with both owner generations, the board and the administration, and then contribute proposals for future organisation of the enterprise. We challenge and clarify on the basis of everyone’s confidence that our concern is to find good solutions for the family. Our expertise and experience allow us to make constructive suggestions and solutions.
