Kickoff Roundtable: Family Values and M&A—Finding Alignment

Presented By: UBS

After a corporate career, Christin Cardone McClave entered her third-generation family business to help bring it to the next level--and ultimately helped execute a sale transaction for the largest private auto parts manufacturer in Philadelphia with over a billion in revenue. In a discussion with the UBS Global Wealth Management team, Christin will share her journey, addressing how her family managed through being business partners over the years, why they ultimately decided a full sale was a path they wanted to pursue—and how they have adjusted back to being a family, after the transaction.
