Hear the Future Automotive Group family business story.


Steve Pleau receiving his induction into Ford Dealer’s Hall of Fame, with son Geoff Pleau.

Steve and Geoff Pleau will highlight how they’ve grown their second-generation family business into one of the most successful auto retailers in the country as well as how they are now working to facilitate a smooth transition to the next generation…and beyond.  It isn’t always simple, many factors are involved when taking your family business to the next generation. Steve and Geoff will openly discuss the trials, setbacks and accomplishments in what has led them to this next chapter in their family business legacy.

Discussion topics include:
  • Who should be the beneficiaries of your family business?
  • How to talk to your kids about the family business, future expectations and plans for succession.
  • Why it’s important to have your kids gain experience outside the family business first.
  • Tips on developing the required skill sets and experience to take over the family business when the time is right.
