Family businesses are crucial to the health of Europe's economy. They contribute more than 50% to the eurozone's private sector activity and are playing a crucial role in the recovery of many of the hard-pressed economies of the region.
This is why each year CampdenFB, in association with Societe Generale Private Banking, recognise this dynamic and vital sector through the European Families in Business Awards, with 2018 marking the seventh year of the ceremony.
In 2018 the awards gala took place in Madrid on 12 June. Spain is a major hub for European family business activity, with 85% of companies categorised as being family-owned, accounting for 70% of the country’s GDP, according to the Family Firm Institute. Among the most prolific are Corte Inglés, Europe’s biggest department store, and Santander, the largest bank on the Continent, which together generate 2.6% of the country’s GDP.
