TROY – Walsh College has announced the Succession Success Award, a new recognition for family owned and operated businesses that have successfully transitioned leadership and ownership, from one generation to the next. The award is presented through the Best of Michigan Business awards program, in light of a collaborate effort between the Walsh College Leadership Center and DKSS CPAs + Advisors.
Nominations are now open and must be submitted by Aug. 20 at michbusiness.com/events/the-best-of-michbusiness-2015/nomination.
“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.”
The Succession Success Award is one of several that will be presented at the Best of #MichBiz event at 5:30 p.m on Nov. 17. The event will take place at the International Banquet Center in Detroit.
