2001 – Founding Fellows

“Becoming a founding Fellow of FFI was an incredibly meaningful recognition, a humbling experience, and given the other founding Fellows — a welcome responsibility. The Fellows are the pinnacle of family business and as such must fervently advance and protect the science and the practice of working with family enterprises. I’d have to say that when the Fellows were first inaugurated in 2001 in London it was a defining moment in the field — the beginning of a new phase in evolution of a professional field.”
