Welcome

2017 Wisconsin FamilyBiz

Dan Meyer, publisher

Dear Readers,

dan-meyer-at-his-desk-2015-006Welcome to the inaugural issue of Wisconsin FamilyBiz, a brand new annual magazine from BizTimes Media.

We got the idea for FamilyBiz from the readers of BizTimes Milwaukee, many of whom own or run family businesses themselves. We get consistently good feedback on the stories we publish that address the unique concerns of family owned and closely held businesses; for us, the logical next step was to provide a resource for the whole state of Wisconsin.

2017’s Wisconsin FamilyBiz looks at five key areas of interest to any family-owned business, regardless of industry. Though there are obviously more than five concerns facing the leadership of these companies every day, our choices for this issue – Leadership, Legacy, Succession, Estate Planning and Family Dynamics – touch on the ideas we hear about the most.

As the owner of a family business myself, I couldn’t be prouder or more excited to launch a publication like this. I value your feedback, and invite you to write me directly at
Dan.Meyer@BizTimes.com with any questions, concerns or ideas for next year.

Thanks so much,

Dan Meyer

President, founder, BizTimes Media
