Accounting for 70% of all businesses across Australia, a number exceeding 1.5 million, family businesses are the backbone of the Australian economy and employ 50% of the Nation’s workforce. Their success is critical to our way of life. 25 years ago, the Family Business Association (FBA) was created by the family business community for the family business community to give family businesses their best opportunity to thrive and succeed.
Tim Smith is the National Membership Manager of FBA. With a client facing background in banking and finance Tim has seen firsthand the pride and results enjoyed by successful family businesses, but he has also seen the heart ache and devastation that can occur when things go wrong. Joining the FBA team in 2020, he and the national team work diligently to ensure families in business have the resources and support required to give them the best opportunity to be a successful family business.
