Family-owned, privately-held organizations in wholesale distribution, both small and large, often face a variety of unique management issues, including succession issues, family preparation and second- and third-generation leadership issues.
These organizations are often founded by an aggressive, highly talented entrepreneur. Many of the leadership principles employed by that founder helped build a successful organization, but today those principles no longer provide the type of leadership needed to maintain success through generations of ownership.
The formation of a board with several outside directors can help ownership cross the transitional divide that often accompanies generational succession. CEO Strategist not only can help you in the formation of a board of directors, but Rick Johnson can also serve as a director on the board.
With more than 30 years experience in distribution and five years as a consultant to the industry, Rick provides tremendous insight in all facets of company operations and strategic leadership.
