8am – 10am | Virtual Session

Panelists: Lori Schaefer-Weaton, Mary Landhuis, and Jon Keimig

In family-owned businesses, multiple factors complicate the selection of a new leader. Issues of founder mortality, the perception that the CEO and brand are inseparable, and assumptions about future roles of family members all intertwine, leading overwhelmed company leaders to delay or ignore succession planning.

Each panelist comes from a different succession scenario and will discuss what plans they prepared, what they would change and ideas on how to navigate this very important topic.
