A must attend event for family enterprises.

FEX Manitoba's 4th annual "Keeping the Family Legacy" event is an opportunity for your organization to connect and network with owners, founders, management executives, academics, and advisors of family businesses across Manitoba as they meet to learn, share experiences, problems, solutions and celebrate their success.

Featuring family stories, insights, and advice from three exceptional family businesses. 

We are excited to welcome three families...

Myron Borden of Grant Thornton LLP will facilitate a conversation with Bob Silver, President, and shareholder of Western Glove Works. Their discussion will explore the story of a family business started in 1921 that has become one of Canada’s largest apparel producers and a leader in the denim industry, serving markets worldwide.  Bob’s business story is one of innovation, flexibility and the natural ability to successfully stay ahead of the curve, resulting in such diverse acquisitions as Winnipeg Free Press, Urban Barn and Warehouse One, to name but a few.

Bob’s personal story is one of a strong sense of family, community
, and balance of lifestyle.


Patrick O’Connor from Blackwood Family Enterprise Services will facilitate a panel conversation with father/son Lee Gregory and Adam Gregory of Interlake Agri Ltd. The discussion will explore the story that began when two ambitious brothers graduated from university and relocated from the city with their spouses to pursue their dream of starting a farm focused on high-value specialty crops. Their story demonstrates that not all sibling partnerships are meant to last, and after the decision to split, the steps the Gregory Family have taken to develop a flourishing family business as they continue to navigate their G1-G2 transition together.


Leilani Kagan, Taxation and Estate Planning lawyer with the Manitoba law firm TDS will facilitate a conversation with Doug Harvey, President, and Owner of Maxim Truck & Trailer. Their discussion will explore the story that began in 1981 when a sales rep for International Harvester seized the opportunity to purchase a dealership when the corporation began privatizing its dealer network. Maxim now operates a network of 20 heavy truck and trailer dealerships, employing over 900 people across Canada.
