Join us to hear from Doug Clemens, 4th Generation PresidentClemens Food Group.

Doug cannot remember a time when he was not involved in the family business. From birth to age 2, his home was right outside Hatfield Quality Meats front door. 

As a fourth generation leader, Doug played a key role in transitioning the business from a “Family Business” to a “Business Family.” In 2010, the company changed its name to the Clemens Food Group, LLC which encompasses the legacy business of HQM as well as other “vertically coordinated” businesses.

Doug is a parent advocate for persons with disabilities.  Doug, and Becky, his wife of more than 30 years, have three daughters.  Natalie currently resides at The Mary Campbell Center in Wilmington, DE, and Abigail and Madeline attend Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, VA.

We are building an abundant learning community with growing business families and trusted advisors.  To learn more about the sponsors who make the learning community possible, click here!
