“The FBR has been a great experience for me both professionally and personally. As the President and CEO of a 120 year old, privately held family business I have found the FBR to be a sounding board for others encountering the same challenges unique to a family business. We speak the same language. I get just as much out of sharing my experiences as I do learning from others who are now my friends. If you are not involved, I suggest you get on board and begin enjoying the benefits of this great organization.”
~John Von Paris, President and CEO, Von Paris Moving and Storage
