Description: This legacy luncheon featuring Otis Crowder, Chairman, Lynn Hansen, President of Crowder Constructors and Bernard Burns, Managing Director of McGuire Woods Capital and Independent Director, will be a discussion on the evolution of a family business with the focus on governance and leadership transition.

Crowder Constructors, a leading infrastructure services firm for over 70 years has evolved from a family-owned and operated business to one now led by a third-generation leadership team of non-family managers reporting to an independent board of directors. 

A highly successful and strategically focused business, with a culture admired by industry peers, Crowder Constructors is well positioned for the future. Roy Richards, Chairman of Southwire, and a globally recognized expert on governance issues within family owned businesses will moderate the discussion featuring three unique perspectives: family ownership, non-family management and the role of an independent director. 

Who is this for? Business owners, next generation company leadership, aspiring entrepreneurs, and anyone interested in learning more about Crowder Constructors the evolution of its ownership, leadership and governance model. 

What will I learn? 

  • Decision making issues associated with forming an independent board of directors
  • Best practices for forming and leveraging an independent board
  • Challenges and Opportunities associated with transitioning leadership to non-family managers
  • How to successfully maintain a founder’s culture and mindset across generations
