Haubs Support Family Business and Entrepreneurship

After participating in a symposium on leadership succession hosted by SJU’s Initiative for Family Business and Entrepreneurship (IFBE) in fall 2015, Christian and Liliane Haub pledged their financial support to maintain and expand the initiative over the next three years.

“The success and endurance of family businesses over several generations is still the exception, but with initiatives such as IFBE, we can ensure that many more family businesses accomplish successful transitions from generation to generation,” says Christian Haub, Co-CEO of the Tengelmann Group and chairman and president of Emil Capital Partners in Greenwich, Connecticut.

The IFBE provides entrepreneurial families the support, guidance and tools necessary to increase long-term competitiveness, ownership prosperity and family unity for generations.
