EGYTRANS Successful Succession

  • Supplementary Resources


This case discusses and shows the consequential effects of a family-owned corporation, Egyptian Transport and Commercial Services Company S.A.E. (EGYTRANS), experiencing the transition of leadership responsibilities to a new CEO and chairman in 2015. EGYTRANS was initially established as a family business in 1973 and the forced transition occurred after the sudden death of its CEO/chairman, a family member who had held this position for more than 15 years. The central theme of the case is that effective succession planning results in positive transfers between board members and directors. It demonstrates a successful transfer from a family business to a corporation that went public through an IPO, while the family was still involved with the company. The case addresses a decision to be taken by the board of directors as a collective. Case readers could be students studying a family business course or corporate governance course, postgraduates in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) class, or an audience in executive education training.
