Nurturing the family business, sustaining the family legacy
PwC’s Family Business Services is part of the Private Company Services (PCS) practice with more than 180 partners and 2,200 staff dedicated to working with family businesses and their owners. Our team of dedicated family business specialists has a deep understanding of the challenges and considerations that drive both your business and your family, which comes from years of experience working alongside owners and family members, hearing what matters to them.
We help families develop comprehensive solutions around business strategy, succession planning, governance, private wealth and philanthropy. Our clients span first generation to six generation and beyond.
PwC's Family Business Services works closely with Northwestern University’s Kellogg Center for Family Enterprises to share the latest academic views and best practices with our clients. Our PwC partners and staff get credentialed through the same Kellogg executive education that many leading family enterprises put their family members through.
The program is designed to increase our knowledge of business owning family dynamics and the unique issues family business owners face. Topics include governance, succession planning, development of next generation leadership, and planning for family and business transitions.
"PwC's commitment to custom executive education for its partners worldwide, making use of cutting edge university knowledge to better understand the unique aspects of enterprising families, is exemplary in their industry. We are honored to collaborate with the PwC professional community in this way."
- Professor Justin B. Craig, Co-Director, Center for Family Enterprises of Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
