Succession planning roadmap for construction contractors

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. For the construction industry, the prevalence of an aging baby boomer generation of 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 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 a construction business. Join us for the first in a series of webinars exploring the fundamentals of planning and executing successful succession.

Our first presentation will review the critical steps necessary to align ownership and succession planning with an organization’s strategic goals. Attendees will learn to:

  • Evaluate your organization’s current state of readiness for succession
  • Conduct crucial conversations that allow for the development of unified goals for the organization
  • Align succession plans with company strategic goals

Future presentations will explore common scenarios for ownership transition in the construction industry, market trends, value drivers, and more.

Who should attend

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


  • Tom Sheahan
  • Jaime Lawson
  • Laura Cataldo
