WCCO CEO/President, Tom Shorma, Featured Speaker at ND Family Business Forum
The North Dakota Family Business Forum is an event organized by the Prairie Family Business Association (PFBA). It took place at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota, on September 26, 2017. WCCO and the Shorma family have worked with the PFBA for over 25 years and are longtime supporters of the group dedicated to helping family operations continue to grow and thrive. This year CEO/President Tom Shorma was one of the event’s featured speakers.
Tom shared WCCO Belting’s 2nd Generation Success Story and how the business has been successfully owned and managed by Tom and six of his siblings. He educated other attendees on how to mix business success with family harmony while growing your business and engaging employees. “As a second-generation family business owner there are things that we've gone through over a sixty-year history of our family business that we can help those that are going to be going through the same transitions,” Shorma said.
