Can encore help me with the CEO transition in a family business?
encore does not deal with the technical, financial or legal aspects of a CEO in transition nor does encore provide any advice. encore recommends people to seek such advice and specific guidance from sources such as:
- Sue Prestney, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, email@example.com
- Tiffany Jones, Director, Momentum, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Dominic Pelligana, Partner, KPMG Enterprise, email@example.com
- John Broons, Director, John Broons Advisory, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Family Business Australia
However encore does deal with the members’ emotional and personal aspects associated with transitions via the group experiences being shared and suggestions from the members.
