Trust - The Beginning of Everything in a Family Business

The Network of Family Businesses has scheduled a virtual educational seminar with William Alexander to discuss Trust – The Beginning of Everything in a Family Business. The seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15th at 11:00 AM EST.

In a White Paper found at Bill states that nothing can be successfully accomplished without the presence of one key ingredient – TRUST! Yet many families choose to move forward with their business and family governance without taking the time to insure trust is present in the family business system. Bill defines four trust building actions to establish trust within the family business system. In his upcoming seminar Bill will define trust and how to understand and implement the building blocks.

Bill is a member of the faculty of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he lectures on the topic "Strategies and Practices of Family Controlled Corporations". He was a third-generation principal and CEO of a large construction entity in central Pennsylvania.

In addition, he has served on various boards, including Herr Foods, Hershey Foods Corporation, where he was also chairman of the Hershey Trust, and Highmark Blue Shield. He was formerly the managing director of the Snider Entrepreneurial Research Center at Wharton.

Mr. Alexander holds an undergraduate degree in engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.

We at The Network of Family Businesses are excited to have Bill presenting on this critical topic.
