Really good overview of the successful role that a non-family member can play in a family firm it they take notice of some of the winning political moves to enable them to flourish.

It is not easy being a non-family leader/director in a family firm and it can be difficult to adjust to the way 'they don things,' not to mention the difficult decision making process a family may have gone through in deciding to bring in an 'outsider' in the first place.

Well worth a read!
