Cleve grew up and still lives in Los Gatos. During his college years, Cleve discovered his talents and passion for the painting industry while working as a painter. Cleve decided to follow his passion by getting his Contractor's license in 1978 and creating The Painting Pros, Inc. that same year.
He is trusted by many in the community for his professional results and pride in his craft. Some of his past projects include painting for the Los Gatos Museum, Christmas carriage rides, and Innvision. Cleve strives to be a leader in the painting industry, always utilizing the most quality and safest materials available in the market, as well as providing superior service to each customer.
He is an active member of the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors; he is the President of the Silicon Valley PDCA (Painting and Decorating Contractors of America); and he is also on the Painting and Decorating Contractors of California Board of Directors. Every year he does several charitable projects that help the community.
For fun, Cleve plays guitar in a local rock group called Rusty. His band has played The Los Gatos Food Fest and Brew Fest, Wine Walk, Fiesta de Artes, The Cats and Charley's LG. His band has also played for 'Relay For Life' and other community events.
