How Do Family Businesses Choose Outside Directors?
Family businesses are interested in making the best possible decisions regarding new outside directors. And prospective directors are interested in understanding their unique role as an outsider on a family business board.
During this roundtable discussion, family business representatives shared their thoughts on the important considerations when bringing in an outside director, and we discussed the prospective director’s concerns.
- Learned how to present themselves for such positions
- Uncovered what motivates family business people
- Developed a deeper understanding of how they might best serve on a family business board
Paul Knapp served as Moderator. Sara B. Stern, Family Business Minnesota, participated in the discussion, along with Matt Cohen, Replenex and Mike Gilbert, Empirehouse.
