Episode 214 – Daniel Hammer & Kyle Titsworth – Taking Over a Legacy Business
How do you take over a legacy business and run it when you’re 20 years younger than many of the people who work there?
In today’s episode, Tim sits down with Daniel Hammer (Sutter Home & Hearth) and Kyle Titsworth (The Fireplace Showcase) to talk about that transition of leadership. Both Daniel and Kyle took over successful legacy companies at a young age and each has had a different set of struggles to overcome as they’ve led their companies to where they are today.
In this conversation, they discuss:
- How they adjusted to the transition from being an employee in their company to an owner of their company.
- What the hardest parts of their leadership journey has been—and what they are doing about it.
- What they’re most proud of in the leadership journey of their companies.
Whether you’re an older retailer looking to transition to the next generation or someone younger who wants to step up and become an owner—this episode is for you!
