Top Family-Managed Companies

Father’s Day brings to mind just how important family is and for some companies, family is at the center of their business. CNBC asked some of its top talent to highlight some of the best-known family-run companies. “Fast Money,” “Mad Money,” “Money In Motion” and “Strategy Session” all took part.

In some way, shape or form, a family managed each of the following companies. Fathers, who then passed the business onto their kids, founded some of the companies. Many of these businesses are still managed by those families today.

Click ahead for the full list of these family-run companies.

Note: These stocks are not being rated as buys, unless stated otherwise. The list exists only to highlight family-run businesses in honor of Father’s Day.
