Leadership Planning for Family-Owned Success

Leadership Planning for Family-Owned Success

Succession planning is a core part of any strong business strategy. For a family-owned business, it’s not just important – it’s central to the process of growing and sustaining a thriving company.

A recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers found that nearly 44% of family owned businesses consider succession planning a challenge they will face over the next five years, yet just 23% of these companies have a “…robust, documented succession plan in place.”

At Roscoe, succession planning is woven into our business strategy and plays a key role in the efforts by which we've been able to grow our business and provide our customers with consistently high-quality service.

Succession, after all, is about ensuring the continuity of leadership and values that drive success.
