SCFB 2022-23 Kick-Off Event

“Superheroes of Succession Planning”

September 22, 2022       7:30 to 10 am

Saginaw Valley State University, Curtiss Hall, Banquet Rooms A & B


The SCFB 2022-23 program year will open on September 22 with a unique perspective on Succession Planning: David Specht, Director of the Global Family Business Institute at the Drucker School of Management will describe the “Super Heroes of Succession Planning.” He’ll characterize four archetypes of FB senior leaders and their approaches – good, bad, or indifferent – to the crucial but often neglected process of identifying and developing a successor. Peer Group sessions will take place immediately following the major event, providing an opportunity for professionally-facilitated in-depth discussion about member firms’ own status as pertains to succession planning.  


The program line-up will proceed with an examination of Family Business Valuation later in the Fall, presented by a panel of SCFB Sponsors.  In January 2023, the SCFB will once again be celebrating the strength, resilience, and success of family businesses during the annual Member Dinner. The program year will round out in early Spring with an examination of potential exit strategies other than succession to a family member.
