Armed with a 20+ year track record of proven success...That's Alex Clemens, Our Founding Partner
Alex has served as a political aide, a community organizer, a media consultant, a campaign strategist, a policy wonk, a lobbyist, a mouthpiece, a private investigator, a public speaker, a professor, and an advocate. (And as a business owner, he knows what a pain it is to hire consultants.) He has brought his skills to bear on behalf of educational entities, developers, ballot initiatives, health care institutions, sports franchises, telecom companies, non-profits, candidates for public office, community organizations, and pilots who can safely land an airplane on the Hudson River.
He’s been involved in public issues his entire life: Alex volunteered on his first political campaign at age twelve. (His candidate won.)

Living in Kamenka-Dneprovskaya, Ukraine, Nelya sustains her family by selling pet supplies and rodent control products. A father of four, Deo lives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and runs a hardware store that he hopes to expand.
