How can the constellation of owner family and entrepreneurship be successfully shaped with a “non-family managing director”?

This question was discussed by Stephan Köhler and family entrepreneur Patrick Campbell at a panel discussion on the international Global Summit 2024 “THE PATHWAY TO GOOD” on May 16.

Moderator Camilla Cullinane asked interesting questions like:

  • What prompted Stephan Köhler to join a family business?
  • How do you manage to stay aligned with the family in terms of strategic decisions and measurable goals?
  • How does the handover to the next generation succeed and what role can non-family CEOs play in this?

“As a family business with over 100 years of history, we are caught between tradition, stability and change,” says Stephan Köhler. “The presentations and the personal exchange with entrepreneurs and academics are valuable impulses for my work.”

Many thanks to the organizer SPGC for the invitation to this successful event.
