Company Background

Chris Crawford started ClearPath in 2000 because he wanted to get away from the mixed agendas of the corporate world where people seemed too focused on lining their own wallets instead of doing what was right for the business and its customers. Too often he was faced with agendas and motives that were in conflict with his core values.

Chris wanted to create and build a company with no hidden agendas, with its sole purpose to deliver value for clients and have fun doing it.

In fact, the first name of ClearPath was “The Fun Company”.  This was the name of a fictional company Chris and his two brothers created while they were in college together. So Chris figured it was finally time to make it real.

While “The Fun Company” name didn’t stick around for too long, its purpose lives on today.

ClearPath Business Advisors is multi-faceted, high-end consulting & advisory  firm delivering on our perspective thatbusiness owners should create a healthy, sellable business whether they plan to sell or not.
