LISTEN: Martin Melaver: Business Has a Responsibility to Society

Posted By dpacheco On August 11, 2009 @ 9:01 pm In Socially Responsible Business | No Comments

Martin Melaver [1] is an ethical businessman with a few simple goals: to live his life and manage his third-generation family business according to a set of core values; to serve his community, which means developing existing structures—what’s known as in-fill—rather than creating all new structures on virgin land; and to share these beliefs and values with the business community so that other businesses can follow in the Melavers’ footsteps.

In this podcast from WritersCast [2], Martin talks about his ethical business philosophy, his family business’s journey from corner grocery to real estate developer, and his book, Living Above the Store: Building a Business That Creates Value, Inspires Change, and Restores Land and Community.
