About the Speaker

Tim Clegg, Founder and CEO, created Clegg Industries Inc, in 1987 and Americhip, Inc. in 2001.
Tim developed his love for entrepreneurship while serving as the VP of Franchise Development for Smith & Associates, the largest independent U.S. distributor of integrated circuits. After developing and marketing various LED and Sound Chip products, Tim realized that integrating microelectronics into print advertising offered enormous marketing possibilities. With a few thousand dollars in the bank, he started Clegg Industries in 1987. After producing various orders for Hollywood Studios, Tim moved to Los Angeles in 1989 and continued to build the business from a one person shop to over 150 employees throughout North Americhip, Europe, and Asia. In 2001, with the goal of integrating the best in paper and packaging engineering with microelectronics, Tim and his brothers started Americhip, Inc. With a strong business model, and talented designers and engineers, Americhip has grown into one of the nation’s leading developers and producers of multi sensory, digital, and mobile marketing, advertising and in-store display products and technologies. Tim spends most of his time sharing the Americhip vision with leading Fortune 500 brands across key vertical industries: automotive; pharmaceutical; retail; entertainment; tech; packaged goods; and with leading advertising agencies. Today, the four Clegg brothers, Tim, Kevin, John, and Jim, along with their niece Cait Clegg run Clegg Promo, Clegg POP Retail Display Technologies, and Americhip. After 25 years living and working in Los Angeles, Tim and his wife Sharise and their two children currently reside in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Tim holds a B.A. in Economics & Management from Albion College, Albion, Michigan.
