    PRESIDENT/CEO

    GREGG BRUNCLIK

    Gregg Brunclik is the President and CEO of Clearwing, one of North America’s premier production services companies.

    Equipped with a love for music and a penchant for building things, Gregg co-founded Clearwing in the mid-1970s. Under the namesake Clearwing Audio, the company provided audio solutions for venues and festivals in the Milwaukee area using speakers and road cases Gregg built in his dad’s basement.

    By time he incorporated the company in the mid-1980s, Gregg had over 15 years of experience working FOH sound, mixing audio for acts such as Blackfoot, Eddie Rabbitt, The Police, and Def Leppard. During these years, Gregg learned exactly what bands and management were looking for from a vendor. After spending some time on the road touring the US, he returned home to Milwaukee to build upon Clearwing’s growing reputation.

    Gregg catapulted Clearwing’s business after entering into an agreement with a Phoenix production company to trade gear during their respective off seasons. When the Arizona company later dissolved, Gregg made the strategic choice to open a second Clearwing office ihere to fill the production solutions gap in the Phoenix market.

    Today, the company operates out of three offices; Milwaukee, Phoenix and Denver, and has expanded to include lighting and video production support as well as Systems Integration and logistics subsidiaries, and a wholesale/retail Pro Shop. Under Gregg’s leadership, the company has gone from a small, local business to a successful corporation tackling some of the largest events in the US including Summerfest, the MLB All-Star Games, and Super Bowl tailgate parties.
