ClearCompany was listed at #1543 on the Inc. 5000 this year, and the company also won the Best Places to Work award from the Boston Business Journal.
After graduating from Millbrook in 1994, Colin attended Tufts University and earned his B.A. in economics. So how did he get to be a successful owner of a technology company providing talent management software? Here he sheds a bit of light on his journey.
When I interviewed at Millbrook, my father, in an aside with Admissions Director Sandy Podmaniczky, asked if Millbrook would truly be a good place for me. Boarding schools were a new thing for both of us, so naturally there was uncertainty. Mr. Pod replied that while I might not be elected student body president, there was a lot there for someone like me. My father told me that story at the end of my Vth form year, when I called him to tell him that I’d just won the election for student body president.
