Editorial Reviews

"Having recently gone through the process of identifying, hiring, and orienting non-family executives for our family business, I found the concepts and strategies in More Than Family to be extremely relevant and helpful.  The process of bringing a non-family executive into a family business requires much forethought and planning.  This book serves as a very informative resources guide for the issues associated with this process."  —Rick Fogelman, CEO, Fogelman Properties, Memphis, TN "John Ward and Craig Aronoff nailed it! Assisting family-owned businesses in identifying, attracting and retaining key non-family executives is what we do on a daily basis around the world.  In More Than Family: John and Craig have captured the crucial elements of this process.  Congratulations."  —John R.
