Walsh College Leadership Center Opens Nominations for Family Business Award


NOVI — The Succession Success Award, a new recognition for family owned and operated businesses, is being offered by the Walsh College Leadership Center through the Best of Michigan Business awards program. The award honors family owned and operated businesses that have transitioned ownership from one generation to the next. 

“Nominees should exhibit the tenacity, vision, and love of their businesses to plan for the future and successfully transition toward it,” says Jan Hubbard, Walsh Leadership Center director. “Family business transitions can be parent to child, and it can also include nieces and nephews, cousins and other family relationships.”

Nominations are now open and must be submitted by Aug. 20. The winner will receive a free one-year membership to the Leadership Center. To nominate, visit michbusiness.com/events/the-best-of-michbusiness-2015/nomination.

The award is one of several that will be presented at the Best of #MichBiz event at Nov. 17, at the International Banquet Center in Detroit.
