Michael Clawar co-founded StratoDem Analytics after four years as an analyst with Reach Advisors, a strategy, research, and predictive analytics firm, where Michael pioneered some of the firm’s work in economic demography. At Reach Advisors, real estate clients deployed his analysis to help create 10%-15% premiums over competitors. Private equity clients deployed his analysis to avoid major losses relying on existing local-market demographic and economic data from governmental and third-party data providers, and instead recraft their investment theses based on his analysis. Michael graduated from Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics and a master’s degree in statistics.

Before then, James served one of the nation’s leading marketers while at the Leo Burnett ad agency, where his two primary responsibilities involved pioneering online media and data warehouse analytics in the mid-1990s, years before those fields became the norm.
