Today I am celebrating my 20th anniversary working at Hemenway & Barnes. Twenty years is a long time. Technology has changed our world in so many ways - email, Windows, and the Internet were all relatively new business tools in 1999. I got my first cell phone that year, when the iPhone was merely a glimmer in Steve Jobs’s eye. The physical landscape of Boston has changed dramatically too - the Big Dig, the creation of the Greenway, downtown and neighborhood development, an activated waterfront, significant historic preservation, a clean(er) Charles River, and so much more. The diversity of voices at the philanthropic table, from age, race, and ethnicity to geographic and socio-economic status, have grown as well, with so much more ground to cover.
A blog about sustainability of the multigenerational family. Sustaining family wealth and
prosperity, unity and legacy, family enterprise and family office, philanthropy, and family lands.
Now more than ever, meeting the challenges of sustainable family prosperity and unity requires great thought, care and planning. Our hope is that this blog will inspire creative thinking, underscore significant issues, offer perspective, encourage communication and embolden you to take action toward sustaining your family’s legacy.
