Malcolm Buckner is the Chairman and Managing Director of The Buckner Group – originally a manufacturing business that his grandfather founded in 1926.
Malcolm’s entrepreneurial vision has been a hallmark of the company’s long-term success as he transformed a traditional printing business into an innovative and thriving enterprise, focused on providing marketing, print and digital communications underpinned by strategic and ethical procurement services. Recognising the need for the business to remain relevant and competitive in an ever-changing and disruptive environment, he successfully created a nimble organisational culture that is constantly driven by innovation and curiosity.
As a future strategist, Malcolm made significant investments in R&D, software engineering, and analytics in order to develop the capability to manage business transformation and renewal. Acquiring and divesting businesses has also been a strategy to strengthen and rejuvenate the company.
Malcolm is now focused on developing, engaging, and motivating the fourth generation of family leaders who will guide the company through the next stages of evolution and growth.
