    PRESIDENT/CEO

    GREGG BRUNCLIK

    President and CEO Gregg Brunclik has had a passion for building things since he was young. That passion has evolved over time, from building the company’s first loudspeakers to building Clearwing Productions from a small audio company into a one-stop shop, capable of fulfilling virtually any event or venue’s production needs.

    Gregg leads the Clearwing teams in Milwaukee and Phoenix by leading by example.  “The best way to inspire people to do whatever it takes to get a job done well is to show them I’m willing to do that myself,” he says. Prior to incorporating Clearwing in 1985, Gregg gained 17 years of experience running front of house sound for local and touring acts.

    In addition to building a successful company, Gregg and his wife have also built a life centered on faith and family. His nine children, ranging in ages from thirty-five to six, are his biggest pride and joy.
