“NextGen Playbook – Building a Championship Team”

Sports fans know that a head coach of any team prepares many years before he/she gets the chance to lead. A head coach must also surround him/herself with a team that is aligned with the strategy ahead. NextGen business owners face parallel themes as they prepare to take the lead role in the family business. As commercial bankers for over 20 years each, Dana Takushi, EVP, and Dirk Yoshizawa, SVP at Bank of Hawaii, have seen a number of businesses transition ownership and will share their insights into the playbook of a successful transition.

Bank of Hawaii will be providing drinks, pupus and parking.

The Next Generation Peer Group is a pilot program that was developed to help next gen-ers transition into leadership roles within their family businesses by exposing them to various issues that may arise and providing a safe environment for in-depth discussion of business and personal matters. There is an additional annual fee to participate in this pilot program. The fee is $100 for the first person and $50 for each subsequent person from an FBCH member company. The annual fee covers quarterly Next Generation Peer Group meetings from July 1 to June 30.
