In her role with Wells Fargo Wealth Management, Rounds helps her clients approach business succession planning in a holistic manner that encompasses both business objectives and family objectives.

 

"The key is to develop an integrated strategic plan that will maximize value and minimize taxes whether the business will be sold to a third party, or transferred to the next generation," explained Rounds. "Every business owner should plan to attend my session. The information I will present is critical to the survival of any privately-held business entity."
