Event Info

Register for This Event

All businesses must transition ownership and leadership positions at some point, whether because of retirement, resignation, dismissal or other unplanned or opportunistic circumstances. Within the construction industry, the prevalence of aging business owners is building a significant need for transition planning. Despite this trend and the awareness organizations have about the importance of this type of strategic planning, many construction businesses do not have a formal ownership transition plan in place.

Developing a plan to handle management or ownership succession can be a complex and sensitive issue, but smooth transition is critical to the future success of every construction business.

Join us for the second session in a series of webinars exploring the fundamentals of planning and executing successful ownership transitions.

This presentation will review common strategies and structures construction contractors use to transition ownership. We will review the concepts for each strategy as well as explore the benefits, challenges and other considerations for each ownership structure. Attendees will learn to:

  • Evaluate various ownership transition structures
  • Understand tax implications for each transition structure
  • Assess various options related to entity structures

Who should attend?

  • Business owners
  • Chief financial officers
  • Executive-level managers
  • Other construction professionals involved in succession planning


  • Tom Sheahan, CPA, Partner
  • John Loew, JD, Senior Manager
