FDU to Host Forum on Family Businesses


FLORHAM PARK, NJ - The O.Berk Company Family Business Forum’s fall seminar series will feature Alan Sobel of Sobel & Co., Thursday, Sept. 18 at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Florham Campus.

The forum will take place from 8 to 10:30 a.m. in the Rutherford Room, Ferguson Recreational Center. Sobel will be presenting on the topic, “Navigating the Turbulence of Succession.”

Generational transition in a family firm can be a stressful time. If managed incorrectly, it can cause damage both to the business and to family relationships. The right ownership structure and strategy can prevent this.

In this session, Sobel will share insights on how family firms can effectively weather succession, and how to set a transition plan in place that will protect the interests of both the business, and the family, for generations to come.

This talk will be geared toward family businesses, and anyone with an interest in family business is encouraged to attend. Come meet fellow family firms, network, and learn about the inner workings of family enterprises.

Open to the public. Admission is free for first time guests, and registration is required by Sept. 12. For more information or to register, call the Rothman Institute at (973) 443-8842 or visit for their full schedule of O.Berk Company Family Business Forum events.
