A Who’s Who of Callis: Cliff Callis “Boss Man”

By April 23, 2010 No Comments

For some, it may be hard to imagine that those of us working here at Callis have a life outside of work. After all, we eat and breathe Callis. (As a side note, we also know what to say to keep the boss happy.) But the truth of it is that there are many different personalities and faces that collaborate daily within the walls of our agency. For the next couple of months we are going to provide a brief insight into the minds that work and “live” here.

Cliff Callis, a.k.a “Boss Man”

Cliff is the founder and president of Callis. What he says goes. With 25+ years of experience in marketing, advertising, sales and management, he plays a significant role in every department of the agency. This morning bird is no sitting duck!

On a typical day, Cliff is up before the sun. Way ahead of the sun! Around 4:00 every morning, he finds himself a slave to his routine of working out and checking his planner to strategize for the day. Cliff loves bacon, but he isn’t allowed to have it. So, if you see bacon in his hands, please let us know!

He is a die-hard Mizzou fan. Although most of the office cheer for the Tigers, even those that don’t can’t help but wish for an MU win; seeing your boss pout over a loss is never pretty!

According to an unnamed source, he is more of a bull in a china shop, than a handy-man around the house. Although, this may just be a part of his master plan to spend all the free time he can find on the golf course. This avid golfer also loves the beach. However, his relaxed beach days may be far and few between as this “Boss Man” is expecting. No, he isn’t pregnant, but his wife is!

It wouldn’t be right to end the description of Cliff without mentioning that he is currently the keeper of the Callis trophy. Yes, our boss did something that we found deserving of the famous traveling trophy. Here at Callis, we do not always turn our backs to embarrassing moments that may occur to one of our own. Rather than ignoring that a fellow colleague says or does something “not normal,” we embrace it by honoring them with a huge decorated trophy that symbolizes their ignorance. Only at Callis.

Stay tuned, next week we will dish on another face of Callis.

Hint: This Vice President is a neat freak!
