Carolyn D. Greenspon, MSW

Partner, Senior Consultant

Carolyn integrates her extensive experience working with families with her passion for teaching and mentoring the next generation to assume their role and responsibility as leaders of the family enterprise. Through her efforts, families are able to create effective family governance structures that span generations.

As a fifth-generation member of a business-owning family and both a trustee and board member of a family enterprise, Carolyn is uniquely qualified to combine her specialized training with her personal experience navigating the complexity of a family which shares financial and business assets. Her belief that “if you take care of the family, you take care of the business” is at the foundation of her work in the areas of ownership systems, transitions, and family governance. 

Prior to Relative Solutions, Carolyn had a psychotherapy practice for 18 years, working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. In addition to her work as a therapist, she had a private consulting practice working with multi-generational family businesses whose family members share assets. 

Carolyn received her undergraduate degree from Duke University, and her Masters in Social Work from Simmons College in Boston. Additionally, she earned post-graduate certification in Substance Abuse Treatment and Child Psychotherapy. She is a member of the Family Firm Institute (FFI). << Back to Team Page
