Raised in Aiken, South Carolina, Clancy received a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography from the University of South Carolina. Prior to joining SC Power Team, Clancy worked at the Economic Development Commission of Richland, Lexington and Fairfield counties and later joined the economic development team of Central Electric Power Cooperative.

Clancy has been an integral part of SC Power Team since its inception in 1988. He oversees product development—sites, parks, and buildings available in the territory of the Electric Cooperatives, and works with various grants and funding available to make these sites market-ready. Clancy is invaluable to SC Power Team, as he is a walking, talking, human GPS and GIS system, and he knows the landscape of South Carolina better than anyone.

Clancy and his wife, Fain, make their home in Columbia. Clancy is a member of South Carolina Economic Developers’ Association (SCEDA) and Southern Economic Development Association (SEDA).

Having built his own teardrop camper, Clancy and his wife enjoy frequent camping trips with friends. In addition, Clancy enjoys skeet shooting and woodturning and is known as an excellent cook. The office loves when Clancy brings to work his “famous smoked BBQ.”
