The Search Is On For The Future 50

Family Business United is delighted to announce the launch of a new campaign to identify 50 future leaders from the next generation of family business members in their family firms.

Free to enter, the aim is to produce a report identifying 50 next generation family members (under 40 years of age) who are currently engaged within a family business doing a good job and deserving of recognition for their endeavours. Those selected will become part of our inaugural report.

As Paul Andrews, Founder & CEO of Family Business United explains, “Everyone has to start somewhere and for the next generation of family business members in family firms they are doing just that, in many cases following their ancestors who started out with an entrepreneurial idea that resulted in the creation of the family firm in which they are employed today.  There is a lot of pressure on the next generation in family firms but they are up to the challenge and bring new skills to their family businesses, especially with their understanding of the digital arena and the benefits that new technology can bring.”

“Successful family firms are those that continue to evolve over time and remain relevant to their customer base and the next generation are the future leaders and this campaign sets out to shine a spotlight on those next generation members who are already making a difference on their family business journey.”

“We look forward to sharing the results in due course and giving recognition to the family business stars of tomorrow,” concludes Paul.
