"Tomorrow will not be built by the selfish."

                              -Clinton Pope

 

Philosophy

​With more than 20 years of strategic communications, public affairs, branding, marketing and business consulting experience, Clinton Pope has worked with some of the top talent and brands in Nevada and throughout the United States. His personal commitment to honesty and integrity in the communications industry, and his strong belief in providing the best possible counsel, sets him apart from other communications and public affairs professionals. Rather than sell services, he provides real, tangible, active solutions. His founding of CBP Strategies was in response to his core belief that if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem focusing his company to work with those who are committed to developing practical solutions to today's and tomorrow's problems including environmental sustainability, economic and community development and corporate social responsibility.

 

Professional
​​​A long-time Nevadan and marketing agency veteran, Clinton began his career during his final semester studying political science and journalism at the University of Nevada, where he worked as a government relations intern and lobbyist for R&R Partners, Nevada's largest marketing, communications and public affairs agency. Upon graduation and the Nevada legislative session's conclusion, he moved back to Southern Nevada to work for the City of Las Vegas as city council liaison for Ward 2.​

 

Grateful for his political education, Clinton decided to pursue a different career path. He left Las Vegas for Silicon Valley, where he worked at A&R Partners (now Edelman SV), PR Week 2004 “Mid-size Agency of the Year.” At A&R he helped launch the Palm III, Palm VI and the Palm VII handheld computers, among other technology products, at the height of the late-1990s tech boom.

 

In 1999, Clinton returned to Las Vegas to assume the position of director of corporate communications for the tech start-up Preference Technologies. At Preference, he was responsible for all communications, including corporate and product public relations, government relations, internal communications, investor relations and corporate communications.

 

After accumulating valuable firsthand experience in the start-up environment, Clinton transitioned into economic development as vice president of client services for the Nevada Development Authority (NDA). There, he helped attract and grow technology companies throughout Southern Nevada.

 

Inspired by many of the entrepreneurs he encountered, he opened his own small marketing/PR/government relations consultancy, working with companies and agencies in both California and Nevada including WorldDoc, Vox Populi and Kirvin Doak Communications (KDC). KDC, Las Vegas' leading hospitality and entertainment public relations firm and PR Week 2004 “Boutique Agency of the Year,” approached him to join their team full-time to help establish and develop their public affairs/corporate communications practice area. While at KDC, he helped grow the agency’s client base by nearly 25 percent, developing strategic communications plans for some of Nevada's most forward-thinking projects including Springs Preserve, Nevada Cancer Institute and Project Sunshine.

 

Finally, Clinton returned to where his career began. R&R Partners (the only agency to be named Brandweek "Grand Marketer of the Year") lured Clinton away from KDC and became strategic communications lead on numerous energy, transportation, healthcare, association, technology and sports clients including Health Services Coalition, Nevada Resort Association, NV Energy, XpressWest and MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.​​

 

Personal

An avid NEVADA Wolf Pack and Denver Broncos fan, Clinton can be found any given Saturday or Sunday during the fall complaining about officiating. Famous among friends and former colleagues for his insomnia and political discourse, he spends his late nights reading political, energy, economic and environmental policy literature or watching the most recent documentary on Netflix. Throughout the week you can find Clinton at organizational meetings where he serves as current board president for ImpactNV/Green Chips, and former board-member of Las Vegas Southwest Rotary Club, USGBC-Nevada Chapter and Las Vegas Green Chamber of Commerce. Otherwise, he enjoys trying new local craft beer, spending time outdoors with his wife, Erika, rambunctious daughter and two boys—whether it be hiking at Red Rock National Conservation Area, exploring the Springs Preserve or taking in Lone Mountain in his back yard.​
