Trent MacDonald lives in Nova Scotia, Canada and graduated from Saint Francis Xavier University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Business Administration Honours Degree, focusing on Finance and Accounting. In 2000, Trent earned his Chartered Accountant designation, the equivalent of a US based CPA. In 2006 he was awarded the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Since, Trent has worked in several Senior Executive positions within Canada’s second largest grocery retailer, namely as Vice President Finance, IT and Pharmacy Development for their pharmacy division, then Regional Vice President Finance in Ontario then Atlantic Canada. He has also served as Vice President Tax and Special Projects for their National Organization. Trent started investing seriously more than a decade ago and, through his success, now does so on a full-time basis. Given his work with publically listed organizations, both as a Senior Executive and through Public Accounting, he understands what drives shareholder value. He takes this same approach to his own due diligence and sees himself as a value investor most, but enjoys short-term and day trading when opportunities present themselves. Outside of investing, Trent enjoys family life, coaching, sports (both playing and watching) and spending time with friends.
