Shady Maple Smorgasbord


The Power & Perils of Integrating Non-Family Leaders & Partners

Join us for a morning of learning from 2 successful family business entrepreneurs who work with non-family leaders and partners, navigating the rocky path of integrating them into the Legacy Family Journey!

The morning will include an amazing breakfast buffet, like only Shady Maple can do - one that people travel from all over the country to taste!

After the  presentation, stay for a behind the scenes tour of the Shady Maple Farm Market and Smorgasbord! It's an opportunity you won't want to miss!

 This Forum features:

Marvin Weaver – Founder, Shady Maple Smorgasbord & Farm Market, East Earl, PA

 Elwood Martin – President, Shady Maple Smorgasbord & Farm Market, East Earl, PA

Shady Maple founder, Marvin Weaver, mentored non-family Elwood Martin from stock boy to president.  In addition to leading operations at Shady Maple Farm Market & Smorgasbord, Elwood is also serving as an “inside/nonfamily” mentor to second generation family members who are currently leading divisions in the Shady Maple enterprise.  Hear Elwood’s personal leadership journey and what he’s learned and continues to learn along the way.

Kevin Reilly – Founder/President, PrintMail Systems, Inc., Newtown, PA

After a successful career in 1990 Kevin invited a friend to partner with him as he launched PrintMail from his home.  Hear Kevin’s amazing entrepreneurial story of growing and managing the business through times of uncertainty, as well as how he has (and still is!) navigating the complexity of overlapping roles of president/father/shareholder roles - with 2 of his 6 children working in the family business.

We will then feature a Panel of the morning presenters plus knowledgeable experts from HRMML and Legacy Planning Partners to facilitate more learning through sharing and discussion!
