Andreas von Specht at PwC Global conference on family businesses in Oman

February 2020

How can family businesses attract top class talent and successfully manage complex transformations?

Our Founder, Andreas von Specht, spoke on these topics at a recent roundtable discussion hosted by PwC Global. This was part of a two-day conference on strategies for the effective transformation of family-owned businesses that took place in Muscat, Oman on February 12th and 13th.

As a leading practitioner in this space – as well as being himself a Shareholder and Board Member of one of Europe’s oldest family businesses – Andreas provided valuable insights on the most effective ways to recruit, onboard, retain and develop outstanding managerial talent from outside the organisation.

As a firm specialized on advising global Family Businesses and Family Offices on succession issues and senior executive appointments, we are always grateful for the opportunity to participate and make an active contribution to these discussions. This particular roundtable event provided opportunity to learn from various family business heads who came from across the Middle East region and other parts of the world.
