Editorial Reviews

'Initially, our directors were all family members, and we used Family Business Governance: Maximizing Family and Business Potential as a guide to restructuring our board of directors, which now include outside directors. The book helped us to have a more professional and productive board.' - Judy Whitaker, VP, Witaker Oil Company, Atlanta, GA'Aronoff and Ward have done it again, Family Business Governance: Maximizing Family and Business Potential meets the high standards, previously established by the Family Business Leadership Series. For any business owning family who wants to improve how the family and its business are governed, this is a must. Not only do the authors list the questions that must be answered by the family, the Board, and top management of the firm if they are to establish the best governance practices, their cast experience allows them to wax normative and to point out the pitfalls to be avoided.' - Professor Alden G. Lank, President, Family Business Network, Professor of Family Enterprises Emeritus, IMD, Lausanne, Switzerland, President, Lank Family Business Associates, LLC, Hingham, MA'Each Family Business Leadership Series booklet is packed cover-to-cover with expert guidance, solid information, and ideas that deliver.' - Alan Campbell, CFO, Campbell Motel Properties, Inc., Brea, CA
