Clay Craft

As Vice President of Client Services, Clay oversees the Implementation Team at Retail Strategies ensuring client communities receive custom retail recruitment strategies.

During his tenure Clay has been a trusted real estate adviser to more than 90 cities in nine states, most recently in Florida and the Midwest, successfully recruiting countless national and regional retailers to those markets. He has created a strong network of relationships in the Southeast and Midwest with retailers, developers, tenant rep brokers, and is a respected voice throughout those regions.

Clay’s experience and contacts within the industry allow him to strategically identify retail users that will not only prosper within Retail Strategies’ client cities, but also make them better places to live.

Clay has a passion for sustainable growth and design and combines those skills with a deep understanding of the needs of his clients to make responsible retail growth happen.

He graduated with honors from Auburn University with a master’s degree in landscape architecture. Clay is a licensed Real Estate Professional and a member of the ICSC.

Outside of work Clay enjoys spending time with his wife and chasing his two boys around. If you are trying to reach Clay and he is not at the office, your best bet is to check the golf course.
