“Mac” (short for Michael Alan Clemmens) is the CEO of Digital Deployment. He is responsible for the growth of the company, recruiting and retaining top talent, and standing for Digital Deployment’s culture and values.
Mac’s passion is empowering institutions, associations, and non-profits to communicate online and better connect with their users while teaching them how to build measurable and sustainable business value.
Mac is very active in the community and partners with local schools and college to create more industry-relevant programs through NextEd, Linked Learning and other programs and organizations. He is also working on establishing internship partnership programs with several regional schools to expose students to the many interdisciplinary aspects of website development.
In 2009, Mac cofounded a San Francisco-based 501(c)(3) non-profit called Reason to Party which throws parties to raise money for local charity while engaging a new generation in philanthropy. To date, Reason to Party has expanded to other cities and raised over $500,000 for local causes, garnered media attention from Forbes, The Huffington Post, CBS, and many others. Most recently, Mac helped inaugurate Reason to Party’s launch in New York City at the NASDAQ in Times Square.
