Clive Grinaker
Chief Executive Officer, Grinsport

Clive is one of the pioneers of the sponsorship marketing industry in South Africa, having started the country’s first sponsorship marketing company in Johannesburg, in 1986.

He has since then dedicated himself, for over 36 years, to being a leader in the “strategic sponsorship fundraising industry” in South Africa, having raised in excess of R900m in sponsorship rights fees for most of South Africa’s major Sports Federations and event owners.

Clive was a founder of the Raptor Awards for Sponsorship and has previously chaired the Sponsorship Marketing Excellence Awards as well as the MAA’s Strategic Sponsorship Marketing Category. He has won many awards himself and looks forward to rewarding that work that makes a meaningful impact on the bottom line.
