Thai Mac, owner of Macreo Inc.

Thai Mac’s family immigrated to Guelph in 1984 from Vietnam. He has been a proud Guelphite since. Thai has always been involved in the creative arts and after college started as a Graphic Designer, then Art Director, Social Media Manager and now operates Macreo Inc. full-time combining his diverse skillset to help many local businesses succeed.

Thai’s passion for marketing made it an easy decision to start the business. Several of Thai’s colleagues that owned businesses had requested assistance and that is when he realized the demand was there. For a while Thai had managed Macreo Inc. and a full-time job, thus keeping extremely busy. Seeing how his work has a positive impact on businesses is the real payoff.

Thai describes Guelph as a very welcoming community. His uncle was a boat refugee in the 1970’s and Guelph was so wonderfully generous in accepting him. Thai’s uncle was then able to start his family here and in time he was able to sponsor Thai’s parents to immigrate here.

Thai considers Guelph “the most beautiful city with the most generous and kind people and I’m humbled and blessed to call it home for almost 40 years now.”
