Your succession plan and exit strategy determines the value of your legacy.

Succession Planning

Set up for success without you

Whether retirement is 30 years away, just over the horizon or not in your game plan at all, succession planning is vital to safeguarding the viability of your business. Life happens and you need to plan for the unexpected. Divorce, accidental injury, a split with your business partner: all could send your business into disarray.

In every organisation, succession planning is complex. In family enterprises the business complexity is further entangled by personal relationships and emotion. Family business exit strategies must balance two often conflicting demands: economic security for the next generation, and financial freedom for the older generation.

Sean has worked with numerous multi-generational family businesses and understands the unique challenges. He works with all stakeholders, including family, staff, clients and advisers to understand and evaluate succession options and business value. He investigates all family members’ needs and expectations, business performance trends, strengths, opportunities and objectives to design succession plans specific to your business, personal and family needs.

Succession planning, particularly in a family business setting, is not something you should leave to your accountant or lawyer. It requires an in-depth understanding of the “art of business”, combined with strong negotiation and conflict management skills. Sean brings all of these to the table.

Want to hand over the reins in a way that secures your legacy? Ready to ensure the continued success of your business? Need help unscrambling business and family demands? Get in touch and ask Sean how he can help you to design and implement a well-structured succession plan to secure your family and business future.
