Saving Investa is a business memoir that recounts Scott MacDonald’s effort to save an Australian commercial property company with $9 billion in assets and purchased by Morgan Stanley Real Estate Funds in 2007.

As he deals with this perilous and oftentimes impossible-seeming task, MacDonald also explores his own personal journey from his days working as a dish washer, street sweeper, and factory worker to his position as a CEO and leader in the world of corporate real estate.

Also included at the end of the book is a list of 25 most valuable lessons learned during MacDonald’s long and successful career in corporate turnarounds.

Saving Investa was published November 1, 2016 by Next Century Publishing in the U.S. and Xoum Publishing in Australia.
