Succession Planning for Family Farms and Businesses
I am a lifelong resident of Northwest Ohio, growing up on a poultry farm between Perrysburg and Waterville. I worked at horse farms from 8th grade until I finished law school. I figure I’ve cleaned out approximately 10,000 horse stalls – some say good experience for what I do now. I live in a log house with my wife and three children, across the road from where I was raised. Hobbies include organic gardening, backpacking, and travel. Aligned with my life’s work, I formerly served on the board of directors for a family-owned businesses in Tokyo, Japan, and am currently serving on the board of directors for a family-owned businesses in Perrysburg, OH.
