Succession Happens

Featuring Mary Galeti

Mary Galeti shares how her family’s foundation became a tool for legacy and personal discovery after the deaths of the Tecovas Foundation’s founder and two family trustees. She provides a millennial lens to tackling issues that many next-generation successors of family foundations will ultimately face: finding one’s voice as a leader, navigating family dynamics, and uniting multi-generational members in shared purpose.
