Gerald Green is part of the Corporate Commercial Group of Mac, Mac & Mac.
His admission to one of the most prestigious schools in the world is evidence of his qualifications to serve the business clients of Mac, Mac & Mac. After graduating from Harvard University in 1988, Gerald entered the private sector and accepted a position with Atlantic Shopping Centres Limited (now Crombie Developments Limited), the largest commercial real estate developer in Atlantic Canada. While there, he spent four years learning the business ropes from of one of Atlantic Canada's most successful family business operations: the Sobey's Group of Companies. In 1992, Gerald decided to upgrade his skill sets. He left the private sector and entered Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, later graduating from Dalhousie Law School in 1995. Following graduation, Gerald Green worked for six years in the Corporate and Commercial Group of the Halifax law firm of Stewart McKelvey Stirling Scales, before being lured back to his native Pictou County to join Mac, Mac & Mac in 2002.
Gerald Green understands business law and what it takes for a young entrepreneur or an established business to survive in the ever changing world of commerce. His meticulous attention to detail and his single-mindedness in making sure that things are done right the first time are distinguishing characteristics. His positive pragmatism is a byproduct of lessons learned in the business world, where success depends on responsiveness, not protracted legal gymnastics.
Gerald's athletic achievements are a reflection of the same attributes that make him successful in the practice of law. While physical fitness and long distance running are personal priorities, Gerald is particularly accomplished in the sport of hockey. He was a member of the Harvard Crimson teams that won the ECAC Championship in 1987 and twice made it to the NCAA Final Four National Championships in 1986 and 1987. Since returning to Pictou County, he has coached various elite level minor hockey teams for the youth of our communities, leading these young people to both provincial and Atlantic Canadian championships.
Consistent with our Mac, Mac & Mac philosophy, Gerald Green gives back to his community in a variety of ways. He is a United Way leader, a director of the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce, and an executive member of the Stellarton Amateur Athletic Association, which recently completed a $250,000.00 fundraising campaign for this small community to upgrade the youth ball field in his native Stellarton.
Gerald continues to serve his alma mater of Harvard, chairing its Admissions Committee for Nova Scotian applicants. He serves on Scholarship Committees for both Queen's University and a private trust, ensuring that promising young students and our leaders of tomorrow receive financial recognition and assistance for their achievements. All of this and more, while proudly co-parenting four young children.
