Dear SPGC Community,
Dear Family Business Enthusiasts,
As 2023 draws to a close I am filled with gratitude and pride reflecting on the remarkable journey we have shared. This year has been a testament to our collective strength and innovation, marking significant achievements across the SPGC community. Together, we have scaled new heights in Research Excellence, continually pushing the boundaries of knowledge in the field of family businesses. Our commitment to Education Empowerment has seen us nurture and develop the next generation of thinkers and leaders. In Industry Engagement, we have fostered meaningful collaborations, bridging the gap between academia and the real-world challenges of family enterprises. The continuous growth and innovation of our community wouldn’t have been possible without your unwavering support and commitment. It is your dedication that drives us towards excellence and relevance in all that we do. As we bid farewell to this year, I extend my heartfelt wishes to each one of you. May we continue to progress the field of research and practice in family businesses globally. Let’s carry forward this momentum into 2024, exploring new frontiers and creating greater impact together.
