A 10 year plan

 

In our series of videos focused on family businesses, Executive Director of Samworth Brothers, Mark Samworth, talks to us about recognising at which point it is necessary to bring external management into a family business in order to help it grow.

Samworth Brothers are a fourth generation family company with 13 businesses producing chilled foods for the British market, employing over 8,000 people across Leicestershire and Cornwall.

Mark tells us about the challenges for a family when employing external management and having the courage to give the right people the autonomy they need to run the business as if it were their own.
