Zweig Group, a media, publishing and consulting company for the architecture and engineering industries, announced Tuesday the promotion of Chad Clinehens to president and CEO.
Former top executive and company founder Mark Zweig, 58, is transitioning to the role of chairman and will remain “heavily involved” with the Fayetteville firm, according to a company news release.
Clinehens, 42, is a member of the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s 2013 Forty Under 40 class. He joined the firm that year and was previously executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Clinehens and Zweig are co-owners of the company, which has 30 employees and projects revenue of $6.5 million in 2017.
“Chad is the right guy for the job,” Zweig said in a statement. “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.”
Zweig Group also announced Jamie Claire Kiser has been promoted to director of consulting. She was previously director of merger and acquisition services. Clinehens said Kiser’s promotion is the result of the company’s growth and the need for “strong leadership” across all consulting service areas.
Before joining Zweig Group, Kiser, a member of the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s 2014 Fast 15 class, worked in commercial banking for Arvest Bank.
