Born in Dublin, Ireland, Mike Clune began his career in the construction business at an early age in Europe and the Middle East. In 1978, he moved to Chicago, Illinois, a decision that would set the direction for the rest of his life. Shortly after his arrival, he secured an entry-level job at the company he would ultimately use as the foundation for building his own firm. Over the years, Mike’s personal work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit guided him in transforming that company into Clune Construction.
Mike served as CEO of Clune Construction for 30 years and with his partners, Mike oversaw the growth of the company from one office in Chicago to five offices across the country. Today, as Chairman, Mike leads firm-wide business development efforts focusing on maintaining client relationships and overseeing strategic planning for the company.
Mike strongly believes in giving back to the community and is an active Board Member for Mercy Housing Lakefront, Chairman of the Irish American Partnership and Emeritus of Chicago House. In addition, he is a long-time supporter of Streetwise in Chicago, lends his support to Rebuilding Together and is Co-founder of C.R.A.S.H. USA (a non-profit organization offering direct and indirect help for those less fortunate in the community).
