Someone’s got to run Maccies, right?
That someone is British born Steve Easterbrook, who has been the CEO of McDonalds since March 2015. A keen cricket player from boyhood, Easterbrook studied natural sciences at the University of Durham, Chad’s College.
He began his career as a trainee accountant at Price Waterhouse Cooper’s straight after graduation. His first role in chain restaurant industry was as a Manager at McDonalds in 1993 in London.
Nearly 20 years later, he left that role to become the CEO of PizzaExpress, and later, the CEO of Wagamama, but came back to working for McDonalds 2 years later. Before being CEO of McDonalds, Easterbrook had been head of UK and Northern Europe, as well as being Chief Brand Officer.
Easterbrook is a father of 3 children who are big fans of McDonalds (well, of course). He now lives in the USA and is a keen supporter of Watford FC.
When starting out as an accountant, I wonder if Steve ever had an inkling that he would one day become the leader of such an influential global brand?...
