Souper Tuesday- Trudy & Stewart Moon, Building A Business & A Family Legacy

January 31, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Trudy & Stewart Moon, Building A Business & A Family Legacy

Making a family business a family legacy requires planning, preparation, and a thorough examination of the unique issues that encompasses the family’s goals and internal dynamics. Some successful planning strategies can be applied to nearly any situation and Trudy and Stewart Moon Jr. will reveal to us their insights and experiences as to what works and what doesn’t.

Can you give family members a reason to continue the family business before lack of interest dooms it to closure? Is there enough revenue potential to attract and retain family members that may want a different lifestyle? Can the business change or expand its geography to keep family members that may want or need to move to a different area? Have family members been given the freedom to try new services or products to make it their own before feeling alienated? If a business is to stay in the family, these issues and others need to be thought about carefully to preserve its positive legacy for the family.

The Moon family has enjoyed a long and active history of serving our community and forming rewarding connections with neighbors, customers and each other. They live, work and play here, so making Manatee County a better place for everyone is deeply important to them and is one of their highest priorities. They choose to support diverse organizations and causes as part of their community outreach and legacy for their family. Long-term team members are considered family with some employees who have been with them for more 20-30 years! Son, Stewart Moon Jr., is not only now a VP at the family owned business but on the Board of Directors for Realize Bradenton, part of the City of Bradenton Planning Commission, Leadership Manatee, and the Manatee Young Professionals.
