AmChamps 2020- Growing a Family Business

This autumn’s first online event for participants in the AmChamps 007 Programme was a seminar on how to grow a family business, presented by Diana Gligorijević, co-founder of TeleGroup, and the firm’s second generation, her son Aleksandar Vratonjić Gligorijević who heads the marketing department at the company.

Diana and Aleksandar told AmChamps participants about the history of the firm and their own professional development paths. They highlighted the differences between running a family business and managing companies with different ownership and governance structures. The TeleGroup managers also spoke about challenges in family relationships, both within and outside firms, as well as how to arrange and manage transitions to the next generation. The participants had the opportunity to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on business, planning, professionalisation, expansion into other markets, and staff selection and employee relationship management.
