John Hadad

Group co-Chief Executive Officer - HADCO Group

John Hadad presides over HADCO Group as Group co-Chief Executive Officer, a portfolio which he has shared with his two brothers, Robert and Joseph for the last 30 years. 

Prior to this, he held the position of Logging Engineer at Schlumberger International from 1985-1990 and embarked on a leadership role at a local manufacturer during the period 1990-1992, where he gained added hands-on experience in the Manufacturing Sector.

His extensive knowledge and experience within the Electrical sector were well aligned to start and further develop HADCO’s Electrical & Division and the Manufacturing Division which he oversees, in addition to his integral role in directing the Finance Department. More recently, his love for nature has translated into the creation of the Experiences Division which he is deeply passionate about. 

John’s contribution to the Group grew with his exposure in many areas through several memberships and appointments by external institutes. He is a Member of the Association of Professional Engineers in Trinidad and Tobago, Honorary Consul of the Republic of Malta, appointed to the Board of Directors of Scotiabank Trinidad and Tobago Limited, and Chairperson for the Institutional Advancement Committee of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Port-of-Spain.

He graduated from Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Physics and later completed the Owner/President Management Program from Harvard Business School in 2016.

He is dedicated to excellence and has a genuine desire and commitment to creating a better world by seeking out and creating opportunities to build sustainable and regenerative businesses that enhance the wellbeing of all employees, suppliers, customers, and communities. 

In his spare time, he enjoys reading books about the human psyche, watching cricket games and hiking into the forests to revel in the raw and unfiltered beauty of the flora and fauna that nature has to offer.
