1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Mexico, Sustainability, the Future and the Transformation of the Global Economy
Mexico is at the epicenter of a transformation in the global economy driven by technology and the end of the so-called “Washington consensus.” What happens in Mexico will have profound implications for other countries as well.  This talk will present the results of a study conducted by The Lexington Group for Mexico’s Business Coordinating Council (the top private sector coordinating body in Mexico). The study, designed to contribute to the private sector agenda for the incoming administration, used a scenarios method to propose approaches to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the light of rapid changes in technology and in the global economy. The study highlighted the key roles of innovation and entrepreneurship if Mexican businesses are to meet the UN SDGs’ social and environmental targets and maintain a competitive economy. However, it also underscored the need for careful governance of technology to address novel challenges and opportunities.

OCTOBER 11: Advancing Women, The Family Business Way

Torry Katsiroubas Stamm, President, Katsiroubas Brothers & Lauri Union, Executive Director, Institute for Family  Entrepreneurship

Co-sponsored by the Babson Institute for Family Entrepreneurship

Research has found that the traits that make a family business successful, create an environment that is more welcoming and conducive to the development of women leaders – resulting in women advancing further and faster than any other industry. Join in the discussion, as our co-hosts, draw from first-hand experience as leaders of family business, to discuss these traits and how their application can be used to advance women both within family and non-family business organizations. 

About Torry Katsiroubas Stamm

Torry Katsiroubas Stamm is the President and 4th generation co-owner of her family business, Katsiroubas Brothers. Throughout her childhood, Torry watched the family business grow with the leadership of her father. 
Unlike most children, Torry spent her school and summer vacations supporting her father as he continued to shape the company and become a leader in produce distribution in the Northeast.  

In 2005, Torry officially joined the company to work alongside her father and eventually her brother too. In 2013, Torry became the President of Katsiroubas Brothers upon her father’s passing from ALS. Torry leads the company, continuing her father’s legacy. Katsiroubas Brothers has doubled the revenue of the business since Torry and her brother became owners. Katsiroubas Brothers operates in Boston from a 80,000 square foot facility. Six days a week, 65 trucks head out all over New England to deliver produce, dairy and specialty products. The company reaches a customer base of 700 restaurants, hotels and institutions with over 5,000 product offerings. 

Torry founded the Nick Katsiroubas Foundation in 2014 in honor of her father. The mission of the Foundation is to continue her father’s legacy of giving by supporting local children’s organizations as well as supporting the ALS community. 

Torry earned her BA in Communications from Boston College and her MBA from University of Massachusetts, Boston. 


About Lauri Union

Lauri Union comes to Babson with extensive experience both in family business leadership and entrepreneurship through organizational transformation. At the age of 27, she became president and CEO of her family business, Union Corrugating Company, a deeply troubled manufacturer of building products. Union grew the company significantly and led it to become an industry leader, remaining on the board after a private equity sale. Her work at Union Corrugating is featured in two Harvard Business School cases. She also led the turnaround of a large family business in the food industry from severe distress to stability and profitability in just 12 months. As an Entrepreneur in Residence at Harvard Business School, Union worked with students across the university. She currently serves as an advisor to ed-tech companies and education-related not for profits such as Teachers Connect and Next Dor.

Union is an active volunteer. In her role as president of the board of the Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Boston, she led the school through a time of existential crisis, creating an innovative new strategic vision and installing the leadership needed to achieve it. Union also is a member of the Board of the Planned Parenthood League of MA and served as an elected member of Brookline Town Meeting.
