Small-Business Owners Learn from Leaders of Benjamin Moore


mooreeventOn May 5 in a conference room on the 41st floor of AllianceBernstein headquarters at Rockefeller Center, the secrets of Benjamin Moore’s success were shared with an audience of small business owners.

“Overhauling Operations at Benjamin Moore Paints,” a seminar sponsored by the Graduate School of Business Administration’s Institute for Family and Private Enterprise, featured Terry Phinney, a partner at PhinneyMarcinak, LLC, who advised Benjamin Moore for five years, and Jack Moore, a former director of the company.

They discussed the path that the company took from 1883, when Benjamin Moore and his brother, Robert, started Moore Brothers in Brooklyn with one product, “Moore’s Prepared Calsom Finish,” to the reorganization that culminated in a 2000 acquisition by Berkshire Hathaway for $1 billion.
