Interview on the 30th anniversary with CEO George Macdonald
This year, our CEO George Macdonald celebrates his 30th anniversary at MACD. In the big anniversary interview, he reviews the time and talks, among other things, about the beginnings of the company as well as the challenges and highlights over time, but also gives an outlook on the future of the company. Personal questions are answered as well: For example, what does he use his 30 extra vacation days for?
