On this episode of The Family Biz Show, listen as we talk to three members of the Shine Family* of Manitoba Corp about the various ways a family business can re-invent itself over the generations to stay fresh and on top.

This Weeks Guests

RICHARD W. SHINE 

Richard grew up in Amherst, NY and attended Amherst Central High School.  He attended St. Lawrance University in Canton, NY for his freshman and sophomore years.  He transferred to the University of Buffalo to pursue a business degree, graduating in 1964.  While at UB he participated in Air Force ROTC and was commissioned a 2nd Lt.  in the USAF in September of that year.  He attended pilot training and served six years flying missions all over the world including spending his final active-duty year in Vietnam.  Upon release from active duty in 1970, he found that his intention to become an airline pilot would be a very difficult path since the airlines had hired so many pilots in the prior three years.  Thus, he joined his father’s small local business recycling metals.  Manitoba Corporation only had a total of four employees at that time not including ownership.  They served an area of less than 20 miles from their facility.  He quickly realized that we were strictly a middleman and had no machinery to process metal and worse, many of the accounts the company had, were leaving Western New York in the mid 1970’s.  To survive he leaned upon his training as a pilot and purchased a small airplane with which he and his partner could use to make sales calls very efficiently but still be able to spend the majority of his time overseeing the activities of the company.  The company began to grow and expand and continues to do so today.  Over the years they added a great deal of machinery and equipment as well as personnel.  The trading area of Manitoba grew to encompass much of North America and some overseas business as well.  He continued to fly for the Air Force Reserves and retired with 26 years of service and the rank of Colonel.  Over the years, Manitoba owned and operated a number of different airplanes to support their business.  In 2009 Richard was invited to join the board of directors of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) an organization which promotes and supports the use of airplanes for business purposes.  Richard felt that the use of a business aircraft not only was responsible for Manitoba’s growth, but for the company’s very survival and he wanted to give back something to this industry through participation in this organization.  He eventually was elected chairman of NBAA and served in that capacity for two years.  Recently, he sold his company shares to his sons but remains active in the daily operation of the company.
