CEO, The Cleary Company
A native of Columbus, OH, George Cleary has been in the remodeling business for almost 40 years. He founded The Cleary Company in 1994 with $10,000, a computer, a truck, some tools and a few of his buddies. He is a NARI Certified Remodeler and attributes his success to his honesty, integrity and his ability to build such a connected team. George is happy to be part of enhancing properties in the neighborhoods where he lives and works. He enjoys having his best pal Russel, his 13yr old Golden Retriever, in the office each day.
“The thing I love most is being part of the emotion of a remodeling project. Translating a customer’s vision into a design and then building their dream is the best part of what we do. This coupled with working with great friends makes what I do so rewarding”.
Owner, MAK DESIGN + BUILD
