Mitzi Perdue is the daughter of one family business titan (her
father founded the Sheraton Hotel Chain) and the widow of another,
(her late husband was the family business poultry magnate, Frank
Perdue), and she is also a businesswoman in her own right.
She started the family wine grape business, now one of the larger suppliers of wine grapes in California. Mitzi likes nothing better than to share insider tips for successful family businesses. Her family of origin (the one that started the Sheraton Hotels) began with the family business, Henderson Estate Company, in 1840, and her Perdue family started in 1920 in the poultry business.
These two families have a combined tradition of 276 years of staying together as a family. Mitzi is happy to share actionable advice on how they created and maintained their family businesses.
