Success and Succession takes Vision
While most family owned businesses cannot successfully transition to the second or third generation, Wagman has defied the odds, currently operating with management from the third and fourth generations. Furthermore, the strategic direction of the company has allowed for steady and significant growth and diversification, particularly over the past ten years. Wagman’s Core Values are an integral part of every decision and every plan made at Wagman and we strongly believe that our values have laid the foundation for our success and longevity for our past, present and future.
According to the Family Business Institute “...only about 3% of all family businesses operate into the fourth generation or beyond.”
