Escanaba, MI - December 8, 2014 Skerbeck Brothers Shows, Inc. has been working for several years to coordinate the succession of Skerbeck Brothers Shows to the next generation of family owners. This is an important undertaking because the Skerbeck Family has a long tradition in the outdoor amusement business. Over the past 160 years, the family business has transitioned with stability through six generations. Some of the family business names have included Skerbeck Circus, Skerbeck Shows, Skerbeck's Great Northern Shows, Skerbeck Amusement Company, and most recently, Skerbeck Brothers Shows.

As co-equal business partners with a large asset pool and expanding families, Joe and Bill Skerbeck have operated Skerbeck Brothers Shows, Inc. as two divisions for several years. In order to formally move assets from one generation to another, two new business identities were created to represent the two business divisions.

As of December 8, 2014, the units will be identified as Skerbeck Entertainment Group, Inc., and Skerbeck Family Carnival, Inc. Joe Skerbeck announces his retirement with this change in ownership, appointing Jamie Skerbeck as President of Skerbeck Entertainment Group. Bill Skerbeck is the President of Skerbeck Family Carnival. Joe Skerbeck will continue to remain active through his retirement period through his role as a Director of the Outdoor Amusement Business Association.

The assets utilized at existing events will remain the same. The two divisions will continue to have a cooperative relationship for events where assets are combined and look forward to working together at certain key events for many years to come.
