Each year, the Family Business Review editor and associate editors select one reviewer who excelled in his or her reviewing for FBR in the previous year, highlighting the importance of reviewers in the development and publication of scholarly research. Evaluating criteria includes the quality of reviews, timeliness, and number of reviews accomplished.

Tony-nominated Broadway producer Jessica Genick and Resource Management President and CEO Randy Waesche presented the award during the Family Firm Institute’s annual conference, held virtually Oct. 26-28.

Published by SAGE, Family Business Review is the leading scholarly journal devoted exclusively to family-controlled enterprises. The journal explores the dynamics of family-controlled enterprise, including firms ranging in size from the very large to the relatively small.
