For over 30 years, BMO has supported the Loyola University Chicago Family Business Center by sharing pertinent knowledge and information for families in business. They've partnered with us on the Illinois Family Business of the Year Awards, shared insights through their subject matter experts at our conferences, and continue their support as we celebrate the 2022 Family Business Heroes.

We are excited to share this message from Ray Whitacre, BMO's Co-Head, U.S. Commercial Bank, underscoring BMO's knowledge and support of family businesses. Thank you to Ray and the team at BMO for their longstanding and generous support.
