Family Businesses

Family-owned and operated businesses are the backbone of the economy, not just locally, but around the country. Family businesses face unique challenges in every phase of their development from start-up to changes in ownership. McKonly & Asbury is proud to work with some of the region’s most successful family-owned businesses. We offer them specialized advice and support, drawing from decades of experience in helping families reach their goals.

In the United States, family businesses provide 65 percent of all wages, 50 percent of the gross domestic product, and involve 10-12 million companies. Family businesses possess ingredients for tremendous success – common purpose, shared values, and a tolerance for risk. We are proud to assist family businesses in learning to set and achieve objectives that provide a firm foundation for success long into the future.
