For 28 years, Family Business Magazine has been the only publication and website serving all North American family businesses, providing news, profiles, expert advice and education to multi-generational family-owned companies.  Through digital platforms, print magazines, conferences, videos and sponsored content, we provide family businesses with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their roles, and to bolster their company’s—and their personal—success.
Family Business Magazine was created by, and is owned and operated by, a third generation family business.
With the largest and deepest database of family businesses in North America, Family Business Magazine reaches more family business members—from the patriarchs and matriarchs, to the controlling generation, to shareholders and married-ins, to the next generation, to outside and independent directors and advisory board members—than any other media.
Producer of the famed Transitions conferences, Family Business delivers larger audiences than any other family business conferences in the United States, Canada and Mexico
