How Marnix is building a better working world

“In many countries, family businesses form a bedrock upon which the economy and communities are built.

In some industries, family-owned businesses outperform their publicly listed rivals in terms of growth and innovation. EY family business programs, which include events and consulting work, allow EY clients to explore and adopt leading practices identified from other family-owned businesses.

By preserving and enhancing these businesses, we support the prosperity of both the family owners and the broader ecosystem that surrounds them.”
