Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will be judged by only one thing: the result.

Message From The Director
ImageI am very gratified and honored to have been selected in August of 2006 to head Fresno State's Institute for Family Business whose office is in the Craig School of Business.

However, The Institute for Family Business is not Fresno State's institute or the Craig School of Business Institute but rather, it is YOUR institute and it belongs to the Valley.  We will be mere hosts and fanatical promoters of the family firm as a business concept, a catalyst for regional economic development, and a community asset and resource!

Please join me, our Advisory Board and our existing members in celebrating our Valley family businesses by showing your support and becoming a member of our Institute for Family Business.

George S. Vozikis, Ph.D.  
IFB Director

Thank you to our Institutional Sponsors
