Retirement is ten years away
Succession is a big topic at the family table
Both sons are preparing themselves well for succession
Shares have not yet been transferred
The two sons are preparing well with their choice of studies but no shares have been transferred yet. This would mean that the decision has already been made and, according to their parents, it's still too early for that. First of all, they have to meet the demands of their academic studies, and see whether it suits them. "It's not something that should be taken for granted; both of the boys are very much enjoying their youth," says Regula Donatsch. In addition, all five siblings must be given the same chance. The youngest daughter is still in high school and doesn't yet know how interested she is in the company. Ultimately, they will definitely surrender the shares. But the questions of who, when, how and what are still open.
