25 family business legends offer insights into leadership transitions

25 family business legends offer insights into leadership transitions

A new book by Andrew Keyt of Quinlan's Family Business Center provides a blueprint for next-generation family business leaders to successfully negotiate the leadership transition and engage everyone with their vision for the business.

In Myths and Mortals: Family Business Leadership and Succession Planning, Keyt interviews more than 25 successors of family business legends including Massimo Ferragamo, Bill Wrigley Jr., Christie Hefner, and John Tyson to identify common obstacles and missteps during the transition. This forms the basis for the strategies presented in the book to help new family-business leaders lead more effectively right out of the gate.
