Grounds for Success



EPIC Toledo is partnering with UT Family Business Center to host a panel discussion on generational transition within family businesses. 

The panel will consist of :

  • Frank S. Viviano - President, Bartz Viviano Flower & Gift, Inc.
  • Amy Hall - President, Ebony Construction
  • Rob Bleile - Managing Partner, Research Metrics LLC and President, American Timber and Steel
  • Julia Weiser - Business Manager, Rivereast Custom Cabinets


  • Todd Hendricks, Jr.- Chief Operating Officer, Pioneer Industrial Systems


Each panelist will share their unique story about succession in their companies and will then answer questions about the cultural changes during and after their transition.

As businesses and cultures evolve from one generation to the next, join UT FBC and Epic Toledo in learning how others have transitioned, and how embracing this change can benefit all involved!


This event is free for EPIC Toledo & UT Family Business Center members and sponsors.
