About Family Business Magazine

Through digital platforms, print magazines and conferences, we provide family businesses with the information they need to foster business continuity and family harmony.

Family Business Magazine’s highly acclaimed Transitions conferences and Private Company Governance Summit provide unique peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities in a confidential, no-selling environment.

Family Business Magazine is published by MLR Media. Through digital platforms, print magazines, and live events, MLR Media provides public and private company directors, leaders and owners of multigenerational family businesses and C-suite executives with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their roles.
