Work for and with the best leaders in America as they lead their families, businesses, and themselves. 

Win the war on veteran and athlete suicide with the power of daily wins and a good day's work. 

"It's a gift to work with the best leaders in America. When I transitioned from the Navy - that's who I wanted to learn from most. Masters of the map I was now sailing on.


More than a decade since founding our first company, I'm still learning. All while providing a value proposition to them, their families, and the companies they lead.


But the best thing I do is introduce them to amazing men and women I've served alongside as those heroes transition from the battlefield to the boardroom. It's a true privilege. I am a fortunate man." - Clint


Clint Bruce is a former Navy Special Warfare Officer, a graduate of the US Naval Academy, decorated athlete, and seasoned entrepreneur. He is dedicated to helping leaders protect, perform, endure, and compete while helping veterans and their families transition successfully from service. 

A 4-year letter winner at Navy playing middle linebacker, captain and MVP of the ’96 Aloha Bowl Championship team, he was named to multiple all-star teams his senior year. He enjoyed opportunities with both the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints and was inducted into the Navy/Marine Corps Stadium Hall of Fame in 2009.

Clint’s desire to serve was deep and firmly rooted. He left the NFL to pursue becoming a Navy SEAL and successfully completed BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL Training) in 1998 with Class 217. Joining SEAL Team FIVE, Clint completed multiple deployments pre and post-911 directly involved in counter-terrorism and national security missions globally. 

After leaving the Navy, Clint discovered a passion for building companies and organizations that are both deeply impactful and highly purposeful.
