Patti and Frank Imhof founded IMCO in 1978 and have had a vision for their business to thrive into future generations. They each grew up in family businesses and throughout their lives have experienced the advantages, complications, and challenges inherent in family business. The Imhofs, with their daughters and sons-in-law, attended the Harvard University Families in Business program in 2010 to help navigate their own succession plan.
