What are the opportunities and pitfalls with leadership succession in a family business?

Join Mike Henningsen Jr., President & Chairman of the Board; Paul Henningsen, Chief Operating Officer; Tony Lucarelli, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing; and Pat Green, board member and estate and business planning lawyer, to discuss successful and unsuccessful leadership transitions at Henningsen Cold Storage and how they are approaching leadership succession in the future.

Mike, a fourth-generation family member, succeeded his father, Michael Henningsen, Sr., as President of the business in 1999.  Soon after, Mike Jr. became Chairman of the Board.  Mike Sr. was succeeded as president, by an outside member of the Board, in 1989 but returned to the position in 1992. Henningsen Cold Storage (originally named Northwestern Ice & Cold Storage) was founded in Oregon in 1923 by Waldemar F. Henningsen, Sr.  The company now operates in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
