Mr. Clive joined the military right after high school and played football for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Operational and Management Statistics. Upon receiving an honorable discharge as a service disabled veteran, Mr. Clive set his sights on tackling the business world.
After a successful and rewarding career working for nearly 10 years in the field of construction and land development (with a strong emphasis with regulatory environmental concerns and reducing energy use within the building envelope) within Fortune 500 companies such as Pulte Homes and Toll Brothers, Mr. Clive co-founded Venergy Group in 2009. Venergy Group was established as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) with the goal of putting as many veterans to work to serve their fellow veterans in the federal and commercial world.

Utilizing the skills he developed in the military, business world and energy sector, Mr. Clive has developed and demonstrated his company’s ability to thrive through the use of its technology, products and services, obtaining contracts with the federal, state and local governments and a variety of domestic businesses from the industrial sector.
