Spencer Burke, Principal at The St. Louis Trust Company and adjunct lecturer in family business at the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis, has been named the Eugene F. Williams, Jr. Executive in Residence for the Koch Center for Family Business.

Earlier this year, four members of St. Louis’ Koch family (Roger and Fran Koch and Paul and Elke Koch) committed $12 million to endow and establish the Koch Center for Family Business at the Olin School. The primary aim of the new family business program is to “educate future business leaders on unique family business issues while providing resources for family enterprise as they grapple with these challenges.”

As the Executive in Residence at the Center, Spencer will interact regularly with students, offering his expertise in analyzing family business issues.
