Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 10, 2014 – Linda C. Mack, founder and president of Mack International, LLC, the premier retained executive search and family office strategic management/human capital consulting firm, was selected to present ‘Creating a Family Office’ at the exclusive Institute for Private Investors (IPI)’ Fall Forum in San Francisco, Sept. 9-10, 2014.

“Some of the most well-established family offices and private investors attend for two days of engaging discussions and peer-to-peer exchanges on a variety of issues and challenges unique to management of family or multigenerational wealth,” Linda Mack said.

…key decisions a family office need to be revisited to ensure continued alignment with the family’s mission, values and goals as family circumstances and needs evolve.

According to Mack, the session will focus on a few core topics. “We will explore different family office models and the importance of selecting one that is best aligned with the family’s mission, values and goals,” Mack said. “We will also discuss key considerations involved in making insourcing vs. outsourcing decisions and review a best practice process for successfully recruiting and retaining key talent for leadership positions in the family office.”

“An increasingly competitive market and improved access to information are requiring family offices to keep pace in the recruiting, reward and retention arena,” Mack explained.” Talent management best practices ensure that the organization can successfully attract, develop and retain executives who will make the family office thrive and achieve family objectives.”

“The session will conclude with a case study that illustrates how family offices are dynamic rather than static organizations and inevitably transition over time,” Mack said. “Therefore, key decisions related to creating a family office need to be revisited to ensure continued alignment with the family’s mission, values and goals as family circumstances and needs evolve.”

The IPI Fall Forum includes sessions on complex issues including family legacy, investments and risk management, role of private equity in portfolios, due diligence, tax laws, global markets and hedge funds and the next generation of private wealth holders.
