About Us | The Family Business Consulting Group

Established in 1994, Family Business Consulting Group® co-founders Craig E. Aronoff and John L. Ward had worked together on various projects and initiatives since 1975.

Concerned that the rush of people promoting themselves as family business consultants and experts did not always provide the experience, professionalism and integrity that they believed family businesses deserve, Ward and Aronoff sought others who shared their philosophy and who wished to hone their abilities serving business-owning families.
Four other experienced professionals joined the group at the beginning: Joseph Astrachan (who worked with Craig at Kennesaw State University), Drew Mendoza (who worked with John at Loyola University Chicago's Family Business Center), Norbert Schwarz of Chicago (whose experience included banking and being a non-family executive in several family businesses) and Phil Sidwell of Atlanta (an industrial psychologist who had been working with family firms for thirty years).
FBCG acquired Business Owner Resources from John and Craig, renaming the publishing arm Family Enterprise Publishers, a division of the Family Business Consulting Group, Inc.

By Craig Aronoff, Ph.D.

From the time he bought out his brother-in-law's business, the CEO was committed to excellent management, growing the business to make it attractive to suppliers and customers, and giving his children opportunities for leadership and ownership. He knew he needed help, so he decided to develop an advisory board made up of experienced executives from his own and similar industries who could consistently raise the bar for the CEO and his management team. The CEO and his advisory board members grew to know each other well and built relationships based on great respect.
