My three guests have all been on the podcast before, see the chart below. These successful service professionals are all about family and working with their dads. The aftermarket is made up of many successful family businesses. They have their challenges and rewards.
I contacted Gary Pontious Jr. (Episode 197), Tom Palermo (Episode 87) and Brett Beachler, (Episode 199) and asked if they would be part of a round table about their family business dynamic, especially their role with their dad’s.
To build on the family dynamic, I asked Gary, Tom and Brett if they could get their dads to participate in their own round-table interview.
You now get the benefit of two incredibly sincere interviews from the three sons in this episode and look for episode 224 for the Dads’ interview.
