John Anthony McDonald II: A Man of Uncommon Vision
John Anthony McDonald II is very much the product of his grandmother, and the lessons he learned from her echoes down into the character of the J. Anthony’s Corporation today.
Finally, John McDonald learned from his grandmother a genuine and enduring concern and respect for every person, rich or poor, and always tried to practice her favorite rule for living: “Always remember to place yourself in the other person’s shoes.”
Individually, the principles John McDonald instilled in his company can seem simple and almost quaint. Taken together though, they’re an all-too-rare combination in today’s business world. Fortunately, John McDonald himself shows that common sense, decency and social justice is a proven recipe for enduring business success.
