Chicago (PRWEB) June 11, 2010
Linda Mack, founder and president of Mack International, a premier retained executive search and human capital/talent management consulting firm, has been chosen to chair The New Family Office Forum on June 15-17 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park.
The Institute for International Research (IIR) researched and developed the New Family Office Forum for ultra-high net-worth family office members, executives and transitioning business owners. Its purpose: to address the complex challenges of managing wealth through generations. The forum provides an atmosphere conducive to peer discussion and informal networking among families of wealth.
"The forum offers family office members, executives and transitioning business owners access to world-class expertise on critical areas of multi-generational wealth planning and preservation," Mack explains.
The Family Office Forum has been fully redesigned for 2010, based on research showing that many families in today's tumultuous market know it is essential to obtain timely, independent advice they can trust to protect their wealth. "Many families are also seeking professional help in making investment and strategic decisions to preserve their cohesion and wealth across generations," says Ms. Mack.
The program includes sessions on perpetuating a family legacy, the new rules of investment, families under pressure, transitioning from family business to family office, estate and tax planning strategies, and strategic philanthropy.
In addition to chairing the forum, Ms. Mack will lead session tracks on the new rules of investment for families of wealth and planning to preserve the family legacy. She will also moderate a panel discussion on governance structure with three distinguished family office executives representing multi-generational families.
"The panel members will discuss their respective family governance structures and best practices critical to family sustainability to future generations," Ms. Mack explains. "Designing a governance structure to meet the needs of each family is a key factor in the family's ability to accomplish its long-term mission and objectives."
