Australian Owner Manager collaborates with Family Business Australia (FBA)

Australian Owner Manager recently entered into an Associate Partner collaboration with Family Business Australia (FBA). The collaboration means that both organisations will now be offering extended services and support for owners of family businesses across Australia.

Family-owned businesses are essential to Australia with 70% of business across Australia being family run. There is a certain understanding and trust that comes when working with a family business. When family work together and share their wins and achievements, it is not just a job, but they have the future of their family invested. This investment is often reflected in their business practices and results in increased trust and relationships with their clients and customers.

“FBA has unique insight and a wealth of expertise in helping family-owned businesses harness success, family governance and family succession options. Almost 50% of the businesses that we see on the owner manager program are family businesses where two or more family members are working in the business. It makes sense to connect and promote the benefits of FBA membership to the Owner Manager Program community.” said Australian Owner Manager Executive Director, Rob Douglas.

About Australian Owner Manager: Australian Owner Manager delivers practical, effective education and business acceleration options to the owners of mid-sized Australian businesses ($3m-$100m). The organisation and the various programs grew out of work undertaken at the icehouse – one of Australasia's leading business accelerators and the University of Queensland Business School. The flagship Australian Owner Manager Program has been running in Australia since 2012 and was adapted from a similar program started at the icehouse in New Zealand in 2001.
