Our colleague Alexandra Jequier is the guest host of the latest episode of the INSEAD Family Business Podcast, which delves into the intricacies of succession planning and NextGen transition in family enterprises. Titled “Transition to Next-Gen: Rewriting the Rules of Succession,” this episode features Marie and Valentine Barbier-Mueller, co-CEOs of SPG, who share their remarkable journey and insights into family business dynamics.

Marie and Valentine represent the third generation of their family enterprise, founded in Geneva by their grandfather in 1960. Since 2023, they have been at the helm of SPG, blending tradition with innovation in the real estate realm. Their story offers invaluable lessons on CEO leadership roles, managing familial and board relationships, the significance of female leaders, and preparing future generations for leadership.
