Family Business CEO Panel

Long Island is filled with many family businesses. They pose special challenges to management because of the relationships of family members. When a child is working with their parent, aunt, uncle, grandparent, etc., the conflicts of generations and personalities can create problems. Relatively few family businesses survive to a second generation and almost none last to the third.

Join us for a CEO panel that will discuss how their companies have achieved success in spite of added obstacles. These leaders have been able to help their organizations survive and thrive for twenty years and more. They have learned to manage themselves and their family members, while effectively running their businesses.

-- David Friedfeld (CEO, Clearvision Optical)
-- Mitchell Nesenoff (CEO, CES Industries)
-- Brandyn Gold (President, Gold Design & Graphics)
-- Jerry Siegel (President, JASB Management) (Moderator)

This promises to be a very special night that will benefit everyone.
Please join us and invite your friends. They'll be glad you did!
