Don Lyon

Don Lyon has worked with Ron Dohr for almost two decades helping families with businesses grow and prosper. As a co-founder of Dohr Family Business Consulting and a passionate and long-time family business advisor, Don understands all of the differences between "owning" and "running" a family business. He further appreciates the transition between working "on" the business while working "in" the business.

As a credentialed and experienced organizational development professional, Don has a proven track record as a communicator and facilitator. He understands how quickly the dynamics can shift in the changing cycles of the economy, the business and the family. He has helped guide scores of businesses through the pain and the joy of growth and transition.

Decades of consulting and leadership positions in the US Army, Marriott and Westin Hotels, Rainier Bank, and Associated Grocers have consistently honed Don’s skills of focusing on the organization, the customer, the employees, family members, and how to balance their effectiveness while achieving bottom-line results…..and keep it all in the family.
