Igor Leshtar

Igor Leshtar, who is a well-known Macedonian businessman in the IT sector, has been showing interest in the media business for a long time. He has been present in the media business since 2007, when he bought the weekly "Forum Plus", and later in 2009, the first private news agency in North Macedonia. “Forum Plus" ceased its publication in 2011, and "Makfax" still exists and is owned by him. In addition to "Makfax" and "A1on", Leshtar’s "Clip Media Group" also own "Grid", "Reporter", "Makedonika", "USB", "Top Sport", "M Express", "Daj gas" and "Info.mk" websites.

Leshtar is known in the Macedonian public as the head of the international company for software development and consulting services "Seavus", which in December 2020 was sold to the "Aricoma" group from the Czech Republic. He later announced that he would continue to work with Malta-based IT firm “Synami”.
