Latest issue of Campden FB: Value creation

The spring edition of CampdenFB is, as usual, packed full of news, features and information on the world of family businesses.
In this quarter’s issue, we feature an exclusive interview with Arunachalam Vellayan, the fourth-generation executive chairman of one of India’s best-known family businesses, the Murugappa Group. Vellayan talks about the challenges ahead for his family’s conglomerate, which is involved in many different sectors. We also take a look at succession issues for the business.
Show me a family business that is struggling, and I’ll show you a family business with sibling rivalry. Alright, maybe that’s not always the case, but often it is. We shed a bit of light on the issue by looking at some well-documented and intense sibling rivalries, and consider how to avoid the worst pitfalls of these disagreements.
Also in this edition, Oscar Farinetti, who built up a very successful family business only to sell it and start a new one from scratch, talks about his zeal for being an entrepreneur with his new venture, Eataly.
In ‘Enjoy Your Wealth’, we look at the latest trends in the superyacht market, complemented in the ‘Craftsmanship’ section with an interview with the fifth-generation head of family-controlled yacht-maker Royal Huisman. Also featured in ‘Craftsmanship’ is a Californian wine-making family, and we introduce a new ‘Escape’ section for those looking for an exclusive getaway option.
