Trey Pelz, founder and owner of Clear Marketing, speaks at College of the Ozarks convocation

POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — Trey Pelz, founder and owner of Clear Marketing, spoke at College of the Ozarks on Monday, Oct. 29, at a vocational convocation.

Pelz graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 2008 and worked his way up to becoming the general manager of Yakov Smirnoff Theater in Branson, Missouri. His expertise in branding and passion for the travel industry led him to grow Clear Marketing into the largest creative agency and marketing firm in Branson.

His goal is to help smaller partners in the travel industry achieve "big brand" success through modern design and researched marketing techniques.

“Life has a way of humbling you,” Pelz said. “If you know yourself well, you can grow through the hard times.”
