Subjects Hiring, Organizational Culture, Recruitment
Ash MacLeod was fortunate enough to be born surrounded by empathy and instilled with the confidence that his actions can inspire change. It’s one thing to care, but it’s another to believe that care will change the world.
Starting his first business at the age of 15, Ash has an early start at entrepreneurism and has enjoyed successful, meaningful careers in the music, hospitality and advertising industry and gained skills in each that would melt down and equip him to manage the various businesses of one of Canada’s foremost social entrepreneurs – Mark Brand. As a partner in that business, he oversees operations, business development and human resources for all 5 of the organizations including Save On Meats, Persephone Brewing Company, The Diamond, Catalog Creative and serves as Executive Director for A Better Life Foundation.
Ash manages a team that provides over 1,000 meals per day, each day of the year to citizens who can’t afford to eat, and by doing so creates meaningful employment for dozens of citizens who identify as having barriers to employment.
