Good to see another third generation investing in the future of their firm with non-family members being added to the Board of Directors.

Maintaining the right level of family influence and responding to market demands and needs are vital to ensure the relevance of the family firm and as the business gets older, there is need to respond.  Bringing in non-family directors can be a good way to input new ideas, checks and balances to the business and an independent perspective can add real value to the family firm too.
