Event description

Description

A Panel Discussion on Leading Family Businesses with Joe Cekola of Imperial Beverage, Annette Crandall of Quality Assured Plastics and Stacey Hamlin of CTS Telecom
A series powered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

The origins of many Southwest Michigan companies are deeply rooted in the past. The great ones continue to perform and look to the future, weathering economic storms and changing tides. If you live in Southwest Michigan, chances are you work at, enjoy products from, or drive by one of our region’s legacy companies daily. Their presence brings stability and a sense of pride to our communities.

But as the great leaders of family-owned businesses grow older, as we all inevitably do, who determines who will move the company forward when a strong presence steps down? Is company success more than a family affair or a well-played game of strategy?

For answers to these questions and more, join Southwest Michigan First at First Leaders in June for breakfast and an engaging panel featuring:

  • Joe Cekola, Imperial Beverage President
  • Annette Crandall, Quality Assured Plastics President
  • Stacey Hamlin. CTS Telecom President & Chief Executive Officer

Pull up a chair and join the conversation!
