Saxton Bampfylde has worked with a broad range of the UK’s leading family businesses for more than 20 years, nurturing senior leaders and identifying and supporting external non-family talent when needed.
Our own history and transition to an employee-owned business gives us a genuine and personal insight into the creation and stewardship of a legacy business, and an understanding of the challenges and opportunity when transitioning between generations.
Our aim in developing this report was to gain a broad perspective across the family business world, about future leadership, succession planning, how leadership roles are evolving and the skills and attitudes required as they move forward. We were delighted to talk to executive and non-executive leaders from family businesses across many different sectors and geographies who all shared their thoughts and insights to feed into this report. Through these conversations we have explored the different approaches to leadership and succession planning, particularly the way in which the integration of non-family leaders has been undertaken and look at the challenges and opportunities leaders and their businesses face as they look to future generations.
We hope that you will find this piece a stimulus for thought and would love to hear from you.
