“I am convinced that our 46 years of success is causally related to both our culture and to embracing diversity. Qualities like caring, smart, and skilled know no race, gender or religion.”

Dr. Jim McClave

Our culture at McClave + Associates embraces the priorities and philosophies that have kept us moving forward for nearly five decades.

We work hard for our clients and our team; we take care of each other and treat our clients like family; and we relentlessly pursue knowledge and truth in everything we do.

We’re a close team, something that develops quite naturally when you’ve been working with the same people for decades as some of us have, but even our less tenured team members share the same appreciation of the MC+A team. That is what happens when you create a place of belonging where people are quickly celebrated for the individual talent they bring to the table. These intentional efforts not only create a place where employees want to stay, they produce better outcomes for our clients.

We have three fundamental principles of our culture, and they guide everything we do – from our interactions with clients to our employee experience.

We like data, but more so, we like the story the data tells. In all of our work, our ultimate goal is to pursue and identify the truth behind the data – and we won’t rest until it’s fully illuminated.


We have been driven by one simple belief since our founding: treat people right, and the rest will follow.
