Fall Back Up with Colin Macdonald

Welcome to the first edition of Fall Back Up, today with the Chairman of Clearwater Seafoods, Business Hall of Fame Laureate, philanthropist, music fan and family guy…the inimitable, Colin MacDonald.

In the mid 70’s Colin MacDonald and John Risley opened up a small retail lobster shop on what was then, the outskirts of Bedford Nova Scotia. 40 years later Clearwater has grown into one of the world’s leading seafood companies. With a combination of enthusiasm and grit and a little help from their friends, the duo changed the face of seafood exporting in Atlantic Canada.

MacDonald grew up in Fairview, just down the road, in a family familiar with hard work and the rough and tumble of suburban Halifax. In this conversation, he explores his early days, dealing with adversity, the politics of the fishery and how he views both success and failure.
