Anthony Macie, Founder & Executive Director
As a combat veteran, Macie has experienced the best and worst of humankind. After getting out on a medical discharge, he retained a longing to serve his fellow veterans, which he did by volunteering for several non-profits addressing veterans rights and combatting PTSD. Latterly, Macie was so inspired by visiting SE Asia that he immediately felt a calling to help others by sharing the expertise and resources at his disposal: this brought about the establishment of Expert-Exchange. Expert-Exchange is a new type of deployment - open to veterans and civilians alike - with the primary mission to empower disenfranchised families globally via skills training and the capital to foster lasting community improvements. Macie is heading up the program in Cambodia.
