Thierry Peugeot to Present at September Family Forum

How does a family sustain itself for over 200 years?  How does a family wrestle with the strategic needs and challenges facing their business, and the financial needs of the family? Join this session to hear Thierry Peugeot, of PSA Group, share the story of how his family company (started in 1810) moved from coffee milling, to bicycles, and into the Automotive industry.  PSA Group is the 2nd largest car manufacturer in Europe, produces over 3 Million cars annually, and has over 58 Billion in sales.

There have been several pivotal family decision points in the last 200 years that have challenged the future of the family and the family enterprise.  Thierry will share how his family chose to move from the bicycle industry to the car industry, how and why the family chose to re-build following World War II when their plant was stripped of its equipment by the Germans as they retreated, and how they are dealing with the current challenges of a capital intensive, ever-changing automotive industry.

Don't miss this and more outstanding presentations. Register now for the next Family Forum: Building Resiliency in Family and Business, September 28-29, 2017.
