Helping Families Prosper Together.

We Help Family Businesses Achieve Harmony, Profitability and Success.

"Our family and our business was in serious trouble.  Out of desperation we contacted Chris and hired Alberta Business Builders to help us.  They led the financial turnaround of our business and the ownership succession of our business to our son.  We don't know where our family or our business would be today if we did not hire Alberta Business Builders."

It's a Fact, A Family Business Faces More Challenges than a Non-Family Owned Business.    

We Know That.  And We Can Help You Meet the Challenges that Your Family and Your Business Are Facing.

Family Business Consulting and Advisory

We are specialists at helping business families navigate the many challenges that occur when family and business are joined together in a family-owned business.

Our approach is two-fold.

First, we seek to protect the family unit.

Second, we strive to ensure the financial viability of the business.

Family Business Alignment.

Common Goals.    Common Vision.     Common Plan.

Ensuring that both are done well is more art than science, and only comes with significant levels of experience.  Experience that we have, and are happy to share with you and your business family.


We can help you and your family business by providing solutions to your biggest challenges.  

We offer solutions like:

Ownership Succession Planning

We specialize in crafting family business succession plans that protect family relationships & promote business success.

Leadership  Transition Planning

We help you identify, prepare and promote the next leader to ensure that your business & your legacy will continue.

Family Communication

Communicating can be hard at the best of times. We help you develop positive & constructive communication habits.

Family Constitution

Family Business needs an additional level of structure and governance to keep family & business identities separate.

Family Relationships

We understand the complexities of family dynamics in a family business and help you successfully navigate your differences.

Family Governance

Many of the problems that family businesses face stem from a lack of structure. We help you create structure.

Advisory Boards

Studies show that family businesses that use third party Advisory Board Services are more successful than those that don't seek support.

We help train your successor with coaching and mentoring that will prepare them for future ownership responsibility.

We support you by creating a strategic plan that will help you reach goals and achieve greater success.
