The Luxembourg FBN welcomes medium and large family businesses which are headquartered in the grand duchy
A new association bringing together experts in the family business area in Luxembourg launches on Friday. Prior to the launch, the Family Business Network (FBN) summed up its role in 3 questions for Delano.
Jess Bauldry: Why was FBN set up and how does it differ to other organisations that already exist in Luxembourg?
FBN: Family businesses are major economic actors in Luxembourg and take a large social responsibility. Until now no association exists in Luxembourg that addresses family-business specific topics, e.g. transmission of the company, education of the next generation, family charter, growing family businesses, corporate governance in family businesses etc and promote the economic development and success of family businesses.
JB: What are the main goals of the FBN Luxembourg?
FBN: Our goals are to create a safe space in which members of family businesses can openly and in confidence exchange and learn from the experiences of each other, integrate the Luxembourgish family businesses in the international context and take advantage from their experiences and promote the success of family businesses
JB: How is FBN structured and who are the founding members?
FBN: FBN Luxembourg is a chapter of the international organisation FBN International--there are over 35 chapters in different countries around the world.
FBN Luxembourg is governed by its board of directors and its president Jean-Marc Kieffer; daily operations are led by its CEO, Max Didier. Its founding members are: Raymond Ackermann, of Accumalux, Antoine Clasen, of Bernard-Massard, Max Didier, of CDCL, Goy Grosbusch, of Grosbusch, Jean-Marc Kieffer, of CDCL and Georges Krombach, of Heintz van Landewyck.
