Meet Dr. Northington

arshall W. Northington, Ph.D., delayed plans to begin his career as a counseling psychologist when, in 1980, he returned to Tucson to manage his family's construction-related business. His father had died suddenly, with no clear succession plans, and his mother had little knowledge of the business. So began Dr. Northington's unexpected 14 year education in managing a family-owned business and an opportunity to apply a formal education in psychology to the challenges of working with family members.

In 1989, after his family business was sold, Dr. Northington founded Northington Ph.D. to assist individuals with career planning and life changes. Soon after, he developed Family Business Solutions as a major division of his practice.

Dr. Northington is the author of Managing the Family Business: A Guide for Success. He also has authored a series of articles on managing family businesses for use by newsletter publishers.
