Wade Cleary

In the “top 40 under 40” of San Antonio Business Journal at age 32, managing principal of Cleary Zimmermann Engineers Wade Cleary is currently working on the new San Antonio Federal Courthouse.  Besides his father - an electrical engineer - and mother, who was a mechanical engineer, Cleary cites his Clark High School physics teacher as an inspiration.  He moved to San Antonio from Pleasanton when he was a freshman, joining the football team “where I learned a lot about teamwork” and graduated from Texas A&M University. As a mechanical engineer at Marmon Mok Architects, he quickly became the firm’s youngest partner.  Cleary Zimmermann Engineers, founded in 2006, is among the nation’s 100-largest MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) firms and has been named one of the “best places to work in S.A.” two years in a row.  Cleary is Chairman of the Small Business Council of the North S.A. Chamber, and President-elect of NEF, co-sponsor of the Pillar program.
