“For more than 10 years, Clear Capital has set industry standards for high-quality property valuations, market data, technology platforms, and unmatched customer service,” said Kevin Marshall, President of Clear Capital. “Gabe and Brian were selected specifically because they recognize how critically important it is that every data point, every report we deliver, and every personal interaction we make, must be accompanied by service that delights our clients, fuels the most accurate decisions, and truly helps them do their jobs better. As we continue to grow, Gabe and Brian will help ensure these exceptional characteristics of Clear Capital touch even more of the great people in our industry.

Prior to Clear Capital, Gabe served as the Senior Vice President and CFO for Bustos Media, Meridian Project Systems and Z-Spanish Media. He also held senior positions at Phillips Publishing International and Bank of Boston.
Gabe’s strong background of helping to grow information and platform technology companies such as Meridian Project Systems, and information publishing companies such as Phillips Publishing International is a perfect fit for Clear Capital, with its widely quoted home data index, and commitment to providing the most progressive technology platforms for managing property valuations.
“I knew this would be a rare opportunity to pair my finance and operations experience with a company laser-focused on developing technology platforms and services that will lead the industry,” said Gabe. “What also struck me about the company is its ‘wherever it leads, whatever it takes’ philosophy, and absolute commitment to customer service. Many organizations talk about those things—but Clear Capital lives them every day.”
Brian Wick joins Clear Capital as Vice President of Marketing, where his artful marketing ability will enliven the company’s communications with its customers, prospects, employees, and vendors.
