Clay Tresher is a surety producer, partnering with contractors of all sizes to assist them in achieving both their corporate and personal goals. Clay started in the surety industry in 2013, shortly after graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne University. There he was a four-year letter winner in baseball, while also graduating at the top of the Charles M. Snipes School of Business with BA’s in Accounting and Finance. Over the past 8+ years, he has had the privilege of working with some of the best minds in the construction industry, two of whom he is fortunate enough to be alongside of today.
Clay first got his passion for construction early on in life from his father, who has been in the industry for over 30 years. During his time as both a surety underwriter and agent, Clay has learned that it’s not simply the end product that matters most in our industry. To steal a line from one of his favorite people, it’s about doing things in a way that thrills our partners. This is what he strives to do on a daily basis for his clients.
Outside of work, some of Clay’s favorite things to do include saltwater fishing, duck hunting, and hiking with his yellow lab, Maddux.
Clay has been a member of the young leaders group since 2014 and has been a member of the young leader action team since 2019.
