Michael Donaldson

Executive Chairman, James Donaldson Group Ltd

Michael (Mike for short) is the Executive Chairman for James Donaldson Group Ltd. He started working for the Donaldson Group in 2003 and is the 6th generation of the Donaldson family to work for the business. He was the first person to graduate from Napier University with their new MSc in Timber Industry Management and started his career on the ‘shop floor’ for Donaldson Timber Engineering. Since then, he has worked with 3 of the groups 5 trading companies and therefore has an excellent grasp on the companies that form the group. When he’s not working, he’s spending time with his wife and his three children. The question is, will they be the 7th generation to be part of the Donaldson Group legacy? We like to think so!
