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.
Clinehens started his career as a civil engineer and is a registered professional engineer in several states, including his home state of Arkansas. Prior to joining Zweig Group, he served as Chief Marketing Officer for Garver, LLC, a 450-person, multi-discipline engineering firm with offices across the southern U.S. He holds an MBA from the Sam M. Walton College of Business from the University of Arkansas, and an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering, also from the University of Arkansas.
