Clinehens succeeds Zweig Group’s Founder, Mark Zweig, who will assume the Chairman position while remaining heavily involved with the company. Announcing the appointment, Zweig said, “Chad is the right guy for the job. Over the past four years he has proved himself as our head of consulting, marketing, and more recently, Chief Operating Officer of the company. He is respected by our clients and employees alike.”
Clinehens started with Zweig Group in 2013 with an initial focus on the consulting business, where he made a number of changes, adding staff and new services that resulted in growth of 233 percent in that category. As he expanded his role, he re-engineered nearly all the other product and service areas, aiding the company in an overall 36 percent growth through 2016 — and projects doubling that in 2017.
