Stevens Center for Family Business

Amigo Mobility is proud to be a family-owned business, and with the second generation now working full time at the company, we are learning as much as we can about family businesses.

Our local university, Saginaw Valley State University, offers a great program for family businesses -- the Stevens Center for Family Business. There are guest speakers and family business experts, as well as peer groups that are separated into leading generation, next generation and key non-family members. 

Founded in 1999, the program has members from surrounding family businesses including Glastender, Stevens Van Lines, The Bavarian Inn, Dobson Home Healthcare and Alloy Construction. An organization we're actively involved in, I am vice-chair of the executive council, Lori Lunger is co-chair and facilitator of the Key Non-Family Members Peer Group, and my daughter Jennifer Thieme Kehres is the co-chair and facilitator of the Next Generation Peer Group.

If you are a family business in the Great Lakes Bay region, I encourage you to consider joining the Stevens Center for Family Business. For more information contact Rejeana at rrheinri@svsu.edu or (989) 964-4035.
