Meet The Crew


A Message From The Desk Of Zackarias Aitchison

Hey there! Thank you for browsing our website, I hope we can help you with whatever your goals may be… 

I believe it’s important for every service business to have goals and motivations beyond growth and profitability, 

Having some sort of ‘why’ that’s deeper than money that drives our mission and drives our team.

Well for MacMar, our ‘why’ is making a real difference in the lives of our clients.

I was motivated to start MacMar after watching both of my parents follow their dreams of starting their own businesses. But they both struggled…
Their respective businesses quickly became more of a nightmare than a dream, a nightmare that swallowed up every waking minute of their days.

I never want to watch that happen to one of our clients.

My goal, and the goal of Macmar is to help our clients chase their dreams of being successful with their business.

Less headaches, less 18 hour days, and less fires to put out everyday…

More respect, more freedom, and more accomplishments.

That’s what keeps us going when we’re working together.

Before starting MacMar, Zackarias grew up on a horse farm in the small town of Cayuga. Learning the importance of hardwork and long hours from a young age it was only a matter of time before Zackarias ditched the monotony of school to start his own business.

Matt moved to Perth in Western Australia to start studying before moving to St Catharines in 2014.

Now he spends his spare time reading books, relaxing with a coffee and doing martial arts such as MMA and wrestling.
