Retaining company ownership without running it

Person placing block with business man silhouette at top of pyramidDecision Associates M&A recommends the Family Private Equity Model when family members want to retain ownership of their company without running it. These family members may be the current owners or family successors who do not work in the business.

The key to the success of this model lies in the hiring of a chief executive officer or president who takes over the day-to-day operations of the business.

Our mergers and acquisitions experts find that the Family Private Equity Model offers several benefits:

  • Families retain ownership
  • The owner can step back from the day-to-day operations of the company while choosing to stay on as an employee
  • The owner maintains a commitment to the community and employees
  • The new president can bring new energy and new skills, new opportunities for success.

To determine if the Family Private Equity Model deserves consideration for your business, Decision Associates M&A performs a strategic assessment of your company. We then define the roles of the owner and the new president, establish goals and develop a governance model that may include a formal board of directors. We also provide onboarding consultation and executive coaching.

Keep in mind that if the perfect leader is not in your company today, we can work with our strategic partners at Decision Associates to hire the right executive.
