The team professionals at The Rawls Group have a passion for keeping the family business in the family and helping business owners achieve their succession goals. Originally established as The Rawls Company in 1973 by Loyd H. Rawls, we have continued to expand our team of professionals and have now become The Rawls Group, providing business succession, estate and financial planning for the owners and key executives of capital intensive, family owned businesses. Our efforts are specifically directed to protecting family resources, enhancing business succession through the next generation, retaining key managers, determining equitable asset distribution and minimizing the hazards of estate administration.

Founder and CEO, Loyd H. Rawls has conveyed his theories and passion to an impressive group of business consultants and professional educators, and together they have developed a secondary division, Family Business Resource Center that focuses on improving the probability of succession through enhancing understanding of the fundamental expectations and enhancing multi-generational interaction, which is critical to succession surviving through the next generation.
