Family Owners: What is your non-family CEO REALLY thinking?

Tom Yunt brings a unique perspective to family ownership of newspapers: He’s been a non-family CEO of three different family-owned newspaper companies.

You know Tom as a business leader who is always thoughtful and often outspoken about what it takes to lead this industry forward — just as he’s done for the families he’s worked for.

At the Family Owners and Next Generation Leadership Conference, Tom will lead a session provocatively titled "An insider’s view from a family-owned newspaper company outsider."

 Learn what Tom Yunt has learned as an up-close observer of family ownership models — and how best to utilize the talents of both non-family and family executives.

There’s much more at this Family Owners Conference, including:

  • Candid discussions among and between the incumbent and next-generation family owners.
  • “Our Story” presentations from notable — and notably successful — family owners.
  • Professionally facilitated discussion about expectations inside families on diversifying revenue streams, succession and more.
