After spending nearly nine years working at a public accounting firm that specializes in the wine industry, Clifford decided to jump to the private side and went to work for one of his clients, wine importer Loosen Bros USA. As CFO for Loosen Bros. USA, he also gets to assist with the financial side of their local winery partnership, J. Christopher. Clifford has been volunteering with IPNC since 2011, and is part of the underground band of rock stars – also know as The Wine Room – that make sure the wines of IPNC have arrived and make it to each event. When not at the office or IPNC, Clifford is with his wife and daughters, either at the Oregon Coast or exploring wine country.
