"Though family businesses are the driving force behind a global economic engine, 70% fail within the first generation and 85% to 90% fail by the second generation. Each business is unique in its approach, but owners often share common challenges, including enterprise finance, managing around generational conflict, and preserving the family legacy," said Mr. Isaac, President of GAI Capital. "Addressing these concerns requires perspective that can only be gained through experience. Prior to becoming family business consultants, we worked in multiple family businesses in roles ranging from executive coaching to board member participation to serving as the CEO. We have first-hand knowledge of both the esoteric and "soft" issues that impact family dynamics and ultimately, business performance. With the formation of George Isaac Consulting, we have the capabilities and resources to meet the needs of family businesses in any industry and in any location in the country."
Mr. Isaac, the firm's founder has more than 30 years of hands-on experience both as the President and CEO of a 4th generation enterprise founded by his grandfather in 1899, and as a professional Management Consulting Partner at Deloitte in Chicago. He is a recognized authority within the family business sector, and is frequently asked to speak at high-profile industry events. Mr. Isaac has served on 14 public and private corporate boards ranging in revenues from $30 million to $1 billion, including those of several prominent family businesses. He is a credentialed Certified Management Consultant (1984), an active member of Young Presidents' Organization and current board member of Chief Executives Organization.
