According to the Harvard Business Review, only about 10% of all family businesses survive to the 3rd generation. So how did Chris Jewell, CFO and Principal of Collins and Jewell beat the statistic to not only survive but thrive?

Listen to Chris's story of the growth and development of Collins and Jewell from a small boiler company in 1946 to today's 35,000 sq. ft facility for custom steel fabricating and industrial installations providing services for the likes of Electric Boat.

Chris talks to Ari about his outstanding business partnership and the importance of teamwork. He gives advice to other small manufacturers on how to work with large companies like EB. He also explains why it is so important to be out in the community to promote the manufacturing industry and build the workforce development landscape in CT.
