We are delighted to announce that John Broons has been inducted into the Family Business United ‘Family Business Hall of Fame,’ which recognises the exceptional contribution of individuals and their work in advancing the field of family business.
John Broons is a globally awarded family business expert and one of only three people in Australia to hold the coveted title of Fellow of Family Firm Institute (Boston, USA). John has dedicated his working career to answering the question: how do I guide and support families in business to a place where they’re thriving?
Not only has John spent the last 40+ years answering this question, but he’s also been there and done it. Early in his career, John successfully bought and sold his own family business while maintaining close and connected relationships within his own family.
One of the founders of Family Business Australia (FBA) in Victoria and a former FBA board member, he has a certificate and advanced certificate of Family Business Advising. John has been awarded The Executive Connection’s (TEC) Gold award ten times (from 2012 to 2022) for his outstanding mentoring, coaching and facilitation of executive groups. In 2019/2020, he won the Australian National FBA Advisor of the year award.
Using his Thriving Family Business© method, developed from decades of wisdom and insights gained from working with family businesses, John consults globally, always with the aim of working with families to create a thriving family business.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and CEO of Family Business United adds, “John is an exceptional individual who has worked tirelessly over the years to support the family business sector and deserves his place in the Family Business Hall of Fame.”
As John concludes, “I became involved with family business issues in my family’s 3rd generation business. There is so much that is not known by so many families that with education and positive support and feedback these families can thrive. The work I do goes deep into my soul knowing I can help these families in business to thrive and it is an honour to have worked with so many family firms over the years.”
“I am truly delighted and honoured that my work has been recognised by Family Business United and gained me recognition as an inductee into the Family Business Hall of Fame.”
