Our Team

IESE’s Chair of Family-Owned Business was established in 1987 to promote and support family business and business family initiatives around the world. The first of its kind in Europe, the Chair generates high-impact research and publications on the most critical facets of family-owned business.

In addition to its research, the Chair participates in international conferences, research summits and ongoing educational initiatives, including regular sessions in the IESE Alumni Learning Program.
