What size companies and what geography are you focused on? Right now, my smallest cli- ent has an al a e of $25 mi lion and my largest client

building located at 400 Center- point Blvd., New Castle, DE, to an undisclosed buyer. The sale price for the complex was $6 million. • Buyer was assisted by: Daniel Berger, CCIM, SIOR, US Commercial Realty n NAI-CIR’s Kranias & Shefet ink shopping center sale in Dauphin County has annual sales of $5 billion. Th s size range is my preferred f cus as many of thes busi- nesses face the sa e issue and challenges that my own legacy business f ces. I am cu r ntly focused on the PA, DE, MD, NJ & NY region; however, I will travel further depending o the as- signment. What compelled you to go this direction? During my w rk as Chair of The High Family Council, I was able to work with our fam- ily to establish family policies and processes that allowed us to function much more ef- fectively individually and as a team. I saw an opportunity to provide similar advice and guidance to other families. What do you think makes your consulting practice different from the others? Many of the professionals that our family sought advice fromwere very skilled at what they did; however, very few, if any, had actual direct family business experience like I do. My goal is to help other fami- lies in business improve the relationship between the fam- ily and the business to make it better for both the family and the business. There appears to be n entrepreneurial spirit and his ory i your family? I guess so. My grandfather, Sanford High, s arted High Welding Company in 1931 and then my father; Dale, went on to establish many f the busi- nesses that make up the Hig companies today. My brother; Steve, started High Envi- ronmental Health & Saf ty Consulting Company in 1998 after serving as Safety Direc- tor for th High companies for m ny years. Tell about the new bu lding located in Green- field Corporate Center? Yes, it’ known as The S. Dale High Leade ship Center located at 1861 William Penn Way, Lancaster, PA. It op ed in July 2017 and has allowed us to formalize our family’s philanthropic efforts; as well as, f rmalize our family office components (suc ession plan- ni g, payment of taxes, etc.) In addition we added a large confer nce room for meetings and a atrium whic visua l tells the High story through pictures and artifacts th t we collect d over the years.

What have you learned growing up in a family business? A lot more than I can tell you in one interview! I learned a lot about family business governance. I realized that we needed to change the gov-

ernance structure of our com- pany to better meet the needs of the business and the family and to aid in succession, so I worked on making that hap- pen. I led our family and board through that process in 2009 and completed the last phase of our governance structure changes in 2016. Where did you go to school? Locally, ManheimTownship High School and also Lebanon Valley College where I earned a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Manage- ment. I currently serve on
