Effective business succession planning, one of the most important issues facing the current generation of ProAV business owners, is taking center stage in a new four-part, InfoComm-hosted webinar series premiering today, February 20, 2013, that is being sponsored exclusively by Stampede Presentation Products, Inc.
According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, Stampede is working closely with InfoComm, Stiernberg Consulting, and the law firm of Porter, Wright, Morris, and Arthur LLP to create a complete and compelling webinar series that carefully introduces InfoComm members to every strategic and tactical issue involved in developing and implementing a successful succession plan.“Many InfoComm members have spent the better part of their careers building very successful businesses that need not and should not fade away simply because the founders are approaching their own individual retirements,” Kelly emphasized today.“For years, Stampede has offered its dealers succession planning counseling and now we are taking this commitment to an entirely new level by joining forces with InfoComm, Stiernberg Consulting, and Porter, Wright, Morris, and Arthur LLP to create the industry’s first association hosted series on this critically important issue.”
Kelly explained that the webinar series will cover a high level view of succession planning, including long-term exit strategy options; hypothetical examples of successful mergers and acquisitions including specific ‘do’s and don’ts;’ tips for developing an exit strategy including critical success factors; and the legal ramifications of mergers and acquisitions.Each webinar will be recorded and hosted on the InfoComm web site.After each initial webcast, the individual sessions will continue to be hosted on the InfoComm web site for six months.
