Director's Message

Ed Hart...from the Hart…

At the Center for Family Business, it is our calling and responsibility to work with family owned and operated firms in our region to maintain and grow their companies, develop future leaders, and assist in maintaining strong, harmonious relationships within the family and the firm. Everything we do is focused on each of these areas.

With the generosity of our members/donors over the years, we have been able to scratch the surface in these areas, and moving forward plan to do even more. By developing students, and the next generation of leaders in your firm, we will partner with you to ensure the longevity and prosperity of your family business, thus providing security and prosperity for you and your people for years to come.

We see our role as the leading resource in Southern California for family firms, a source of information and education, and a trusted advisor and connector. As human beings, we do business with the people, and firms, that we trust. No business is more trusted and respected than the family firm who recognizes its people, values its customers, and honors the role that they play in their community.

Working together with you, now and into the future, the Center for Family Business plans to grow, and become an even stronger resource to you, so that you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are heading in the right direction, with the right people, doing the right things. You see, your success and future are what we think about all day. With adequate resources and programs, the Center for Family Business will be here for generations to come, so that we can assist your family business to do the same!

Thank you for your support – past, present, and future. We love what we do, because we get to do it with you.
