Video: Is a Purpose Trust an Option for Your Business?
In conversation with Peter Boumgarden and Ari Weinzweig
I had a fun conversation last week enjoyed with an old friend and a new one:
Peter Boumgarden is a Professor of Practice for Family Enterprise at Washington University in St. Louis’s Olin Business School
Ari Weinzweig is a restaurateur and writer, among other things, who recently placed the ownership of his companies’ brand into a perpetual purpose trust.
Ari shared his and Zingerman’s story; I talked about a paper Peter and I are working on with Simon Pek on the alternatives available to family business owners thinking about future ownership of their business.
Dr. Boumgarden asked us to keep it brief. We ignored him!
