METHODOLOGY

We initially started the research by searching for 10 to 12 mid-size family-owned businesses in


the U.K. from online market reports and industry researches in Fast Track, Michael J Lonsdale
Group, Symphony Corporation, D&B Hoovers, and many more. We came across a League Table
published by Fast Track containing companies including their estimated revenues and amount of
shares owned by leaderships and selected 10 companies. To determine the companies’ CEOs,
marketing heads, and address, we searched for information from company websites, business
information databases, and LinkedIn profiles. Unfortunately, we could not find the name of
marketing head in few companies. We have just included the name of another employee from
marketing department if possible.
