CHICAGO (PRWEB) May 18, 2011 Linda Mack, founder and president of Mack International, a premier retained executive search and human capital/talent management consulting firm, has been selected to lead a presentation and moderate a closed-door session at the Family Office Forum produced by IIR Holdings, Ltd. The forum will be held June 1-3 at the Park Hyatt in Chicago.

The Family Office Forum is designed for family office members, executives, transitioning business owners, and the specialized advisors who help guide them through the challenges of managing family wealth.

“A unique agenda format will provide multiple ways for attendees to learn about the latest issues affecting family wealth,” Linda Mack explains. “Forum participants will benefit from expert insight, discussion among high-profile members from across the industry and small group discussions to address individual questions.”

Linda Mack will lead a session titled Compensation and Management Trends of Today’s and Tomorrow’s Family Office Executive. “I will discuss family office executive compensation, as well as when a family office needs an in-house chief investment officer (CIO) and when it makes sense to outsource the duties,” says Linda Mack.

“I will also address how family offices can align their staffing with their long- and short-term goals and the needs of the evolving family office client base,” she adds.

The Family Office Forum will include sessions on complex issues including family legacy, investments and risk management, family office and transition management, philanthropy, estate and tax planning and preparing the next generation of leadership.

On June 1, the forum will present a Trust and Estate Planning Summit. “There will be five hours of sessions led by legal, tax and asset protection specialists,” Linda Mack explains. “This one-day summit is designed to provide advanced analysis and updates on issues relevant to family offices and those who support their day-to-day operations.”

Also on June 1, the forum will present the ninth annual Alternative Investing Through Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) and Annuities Conference. “This conference is open to Family Office Forum attendees at no extra charge,” Linda Mack explains.

“The conference will discuss how to use PPLI as a wealth management, taxation planning and asset protection strategy,” she adds. “This tax-effective technique is gaining popularity among high-net-worth individuals.”
