Suzy Peterfriend and Barbara R. Hauser
Co-Founder, Family Advisory Council
Suzy Peterfriend, co-author of Mommy Are We Rich? Talking to Children About Family Money, specializes in working with high profile American and Latin American families with strong global presences. Her interest in this area expanded twenty years ago when two matriarchs she worked with lost their husbands and became instant CEOs of international businesses.
Peterfriend helped them educate the next generation on best business practices and developed a mission statement for the families on their philanthropic endeavors. That mission statement is still in practice four generations later.
