Last chance to enter the Top 75 Global Challengers survey

By James Beech

There are only 10 days left for the family business community to celebrate its Top 75 Global Challengers in an exciting initiative by Campden Wealth.

Rapidly growing family businesses worldwide, the Family Firm Institute plus family business experts and academics have enthusiastically supported the free, quick and easy-to-complete online survey since nominations were called two months ago. But the prestigious poll, conducted in partnership with leading wealth management service Citibank, must close on 21 October for the Campden Research team to study and report the eagerly-awaited results.

“We will analyse the DNA of the high-growth companies to identify operational, organisational and governance drivers of success, as well as the main challenges and opportunities they face,” Stuart Rutherford, Director of Research at Campden Wealth, said.

Top 75 Global Challengers gave top businesses “a unique opportunity to showcase achievements in terms of growth and core strengths while also providing an occasion for the high-performers to gain recognition and publicity,” Rutherford continued.

“The response we've had so far speaks to the need for an initiative of this type to understand and celebrate family businesses' drivers of success.”

It is not too late for representatives to enter the Top 75 Global Challengers survey, so long as the nominated ventures have:

Yearly sales between $200 million and $4 billion

Growth in sales between 2013 and 2015

At least 50% of the share capital owned by the family

At least the second generation of the family's involvement in the business

The final report will be published as a supplement in the winter issue of CampdenFB magazine.

Research will be presented to the Campden Wealth community at the 10th Families in Business Conference hosted by Campden Wealth in Miami on 14 and 15 March 2017.

The top 20 businesses identified will receive a complimentary invitation to attend Campden Wealth's flagship European Family Business conference and gala awards ceremony in Prague on 20 and 21 June 2017.
