Jeff Savlov was instrumental in getting our family to sit down and to examine what is most important to us in terms of family values, especially in the financial realm.

We would recommend Jeff’s services to any family that is ready to take their communication and family management to the next level.Dave and Jenn Buckwald, Colts Neck, NJ

The manner in which he presented the material brought to life and elucidated recurring dynamics of family-owned businesses.

I have known Jeff Savlov for years, and have high regard for him as a family business consultant. I hired him to speak on the topic of Siblings In The Family Business: Love, Hate And Profitability. His material was insightful, and made sense to the audience of many family businesses from a wide assortment of industries. His intelligence, humor and ability to connect the dots makes him a very effective teacher and guide.Ira Bryck | Family Business Facilitator/Advisor and Radio Host
