History & Mission
Founder Dale High and Founding Director Mary Beth Matteo
The mission of The Center for Family Business is to serve and
strengthen families in business through succession planning, family
leadership training and legacy building.
In 1995, a group of business people, family business owners, and representatives of Elizabethtown College,
came together to fill a recognized need. With family businesses
comprising the backbone of our economy, strengthening entrepreneurial
families has a great impact on the community. The S. Dale High Center
for Family Business has always been dedicated to bringing the best
available resources to families in businesses for south central
Pennsylvania and beyond.
Today, the S. Dale High Center for Family Business is proud to be one of the largest and oldest centers in the country.
