Family Business Prospects - The UK and Germany
We compiled a list of 13 of the largest family-owned businesses in the UK and Germany using the "World's Top 750 Family Businesses" most recent ranking by Family Capital. Family Capital is committed to the regular update of the contents of this list through extensive analysis of publicly available sources. To be included on the list, at least one representative of the family is formally involved in the governance of the business and the family or group of families have a controlling stake of 50% for private companies, and at least 32% for publicly listed firms. In short, the following companies are the largest family-owned businesses in the UK and Germany based on revenue: Volkswagen AG, Schwarz Gruppe, BMW AG, Aldi Group, Continental Aktiengesellschaft, PHOENIX Pharma SE, Henkel AG & Company, KGaA, Wittington Investments Ltd, INEOS AG, Betfred Group Ltd, Vedanta Resources plc, easyJet plc, and Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd. With regard to data on each company's CMO (optional), we searched their official websites, LinkedIn profiles, and media sites — Bloomberg and more, to determine this or an equivalent title, as available.
We have completed the UK & Germany Tab of the attached spreadsheet with details of each company.
