Clint Schroeder President
Clint Schroeder joined Hagadone in early 2010. Prior to becoming part of the Hagadone family, Clint served as Vice President of Sales/Advertising/Marketing for Gannett Co, Inc at The Honolulu Advertiser, Hawaii’s largest newspaper. Clint had previously been the Vice President of Advertising for the NorthWest News Group of Greater Chicago, a subsidiary of Shaw Newspapers.
Clint brings 15 years of media, publishing, marketing, and commercial printing experience with him to Hagadone, as well as experience working in the Denver and Chicago metro markets. His experience with franchise protection, associate development, brand management, and market share improvement for his own company and those of his clients is expansive.
“In order to be successful in Hawaii you need to understand how local business operates and all of the unique dynamics and complexities. How you do business in Kalihi is different than Hawaii Kai, than on the North Shore, or on any of the neighbor islands. What I’ve done since I’ve been at Hagadone is remind people of the deep, long, historical roots our company has in the local community and economy, and I’ve seen a tremendous positive response and affirmation that this is what Hawaii’s local companies want: A business solutions provider that views them as a partner to success not a pathway for their own profit,” Clint Schroeder stated.
In addition to extensive experience on the mainland, Clint is heavily involved in giving back to the community and has garnered local recognition as well, including being selected among the Hawaii Business News “40 Under 40” Class of 2011.
He serves as International Vice Chairman of the Sales and Marketing Executives International (SMEI), and locally he serves as SMEI’s Honolulu Chapter President. Clint also serves on the Metropolitan Honolulu Rotary as President for 2012-2013.
Clint graduated from the University of Wyoming with a BA in Political Science and the New York Institute of Technology/Cardean University with an Executive MBA. Clint is a trained Six Sigma Black Belt, and holds SMEI’s Certified Sales Executive (CSE) and Certified Marketing Executive (CME) distinctions.
