David Bork - international business advisor
...
"David Bork was one of the original pioneers in the field of family business consulting. I was introduced to David more than 15 years ago through our involvement with the Family Firm Institute. Over the years, David has shared his insights and expertise on numerous occasions that have proven to be invaluable. In addition to assisting some of our clients, he has also been a friend and advocate of Pitcairn Financial Group. His bold style of speaking the truth about the critical challenges facing family businesses and families of wealth is refreshing. David's tremendous reputation, depth of experience, and his ability to affect profound change in family systems is truly impressive. I consider David a partner, collaborator, and a friend and value his ongoing contributions to our firm as well as all family businesses."
...
"As I travel the globe for my family business clients and for my own family's Industrial Group, I find it difficult to identify one single family business consultant as multi-cultural and as multi-talented as David Bork. With unmatched years of international experience in family business consultancy, Bork is equally comfortable and efficient working with a Turkish family, a Belgian family or a North-American entrepreneur. Bork is an avid student of national cultures around the world. Therefore his direct and candid advice to his family clients is always peppered with subtle cultural nuances to ensure that the right message is received by the right people. David Bork is one of a kind and a true Global Family Business Consultant!"
...
"David Bork is genuine, curious, playful, charismatic, insightful, provoking and caring. It's a powerful combination in the service of families in business. He is also a great friend, supportive colleague, opinion leader, and "convocateur". David has a refreshingly youthful presence for a guy with that much wisdom. A paradox, he is not, though he fortunately embodies all of these apparent contradictions.
...
"From the very beginnings of the creation of the field of family business, David Bork has been an innovator and forward thinker.

What People are Saying About David Bork
Home / Testimonials
Clients
"I met David Bork at a YPO meeting in Seattle in 1992. His wonderful intellect and style (coupled with some prodding from my YPO Forum) led us into a working relationship which is ongoing today. We began dealing with all of the issues of a closely held, fourth generation real estate development company and associated family. Not far into the process, my father became ill and died. David gave us the tools to manage the anxiety, uncertainty, and chaos that followed. Many in my family refer to the outcome as a true miracle. Today we are healthy and strong with great opportunity. We could not have achieved this success without my good friend and advisor, David Bork."
...
"I first heard Mr. Bork speak at the 1987 YPO University in Istanbul. His concepts, ideas and way of being were so interesting to me that I went to hear him speak in the next venue that was available. After hearing him a second time I invited him to come to Istanbul and meet my father, Dr. Nejat Eczacibasi, founder of Eczasibasi Group.
Bork's keen intellect, his straight forward manner and his ability to clearly articulate his ideas made him an instant "hit" with our family. We engaged him to help us create the necessary agreements and procedures that would form the basis for how our family would interface with the business. My father's ideas lead Bork to suggest that we adopt the "100 Year Plan.
...
Had we not finalized the agreements developed by Mr. Bork, our family would have had a very chaotic period.
...
"My wife and I heard David Bork speak at a YPO event in the late 1980s. We immediately realized that he was just the person to assist our family in dealing with multiple complex issues. He worked with us to lay the foundation for all the family business issues that have unfolded during the past 18 years. The principles that he taught us, which we subsequently adopted as our own, provided the structures and procedures needed to deal with many significant family and business matters since then. There is no question in my mind that David Bork played an important role in getting our family and our business to where we are today."
...
"David Bork orchestrated my father becoming Chairman Emeritus and my appointment as Chairman of Koc Holding, A.T.M.
...
"We began our successful journey covering three generations with David over 20 years ago. David is very bright, compassionate and capable...a trusted advisor & friend. David helped my brother Bill and I redefine our roles in the mid 1980s after our parents passed the equity and torch to us. Together we established an outside advisory board, which David chaired in the first year. During this period we outlined written rules for future employment (five years outside employment after graduating college, and a "real" job after entrance)... if they so desired for our seven sons, plus guidelines for wealth accumulation for both generations and a financially healthy business.
Two of our sons are co-presidents and soon will be co-CEO's supported by the entire family. Today, David continues to help us as we face the challenges of eleven younger children in the fourth generation. We remain a healthy, happy harmonious family, with nine Mitchells active in the business...our family is indeed indebted to the advice and council both personally and professionally from the great David Bork."

SuccessCare Program: Succession planning & family business planning
www.successcare.com, 7 May 2006 [cached]
Since the early '80s, the family had been meeting regularly with David Bork, a consultant with the Aspen Family Business Group, who tried repeatedly to design a succession plan for the family. P.J. never bought in. The problem became acute when he fell ill in the mid-'90s without setting out a clear succession plan.
...
"You've got a lot of fractious behaviour," says Bork now.
...
Once again, Bork is helping guide the family. And with only the Phelan women left in the picture, they are more willing to consider his advice.
The ideal structure, as Bork sees it, is a new entity superseding Cara Holdings.
...
"This family has its own share of challenges," says Bork.
