Expand Family Operations in the Modern Era

Family businesses are believed to be the most trusted of any business type worldwide—and for good reason. Ninety percent of U.S. businesses are family-owned or family-controlled.

At ZRG, we appreciate the value of the distinctive legacies, character, and souls that come with family companies. Our experts understand the unique hiring expectations of family businesses, and we have an extensive history of helping ‘family-run’ companies transform into ‘family-controlled’ operations.

When a business converts from family-owned to family-controlled, the company should retain its identity. Studies show employees work harder in family businesses due to a heightened belief in the company's mission. Those who plan to rise to senior leadership understand the importance of maintaining the brand's strong reputation and tradition.

We've been honored to have been tasked with sourcing independent board members for multiple family businesses. Our search model emphasizes cultural compatibility and adaptability to the family business DNA. Our network of renowned family business consultants and premier leadership talent, paired with our proprietary data and analytics suite, allow our team to introduce organizations to exceptional individuals who feel like new family members.
