Clay Lewis

Finance Director / Senior Associate

Prior to joining BVH in July 2016, Clay worked for 17 years in various financial, administrative and project management roles for a large engineering and design firm. During that tenure, he completed assignments in Idaho, Colorado, California, Texas and New Jersey. The breadth of experience gained from those assignments, working in a multitude of environments and knowledge of both financial and project management allows Clay to bring a unique perspective to BVH and the ability to bridge the project management and financial aspects of the practice.

While not an architect, Clay firmly believes that simply by opening one’s eyes and having a little imagination, there is beauty and utility in most every space we encounter.

He is the father of three middle and grade school children, and his time away from the office is evenly split between his love of golf, gardening and being a chauffeur to gymnastics, swimming, dance and soccer practice. Clay holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Economics from Texas A&M University and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

What is the favorite place you have visited?
Asbury Park, New Jersey (or whichever place I happen to be in at any given point in time).

What are you optimistic about?
I’m optimistic about almost everything.  Life is more fun when the glass is half full.

How do you engage your community?
My wife and I have been in a constant state of relocation for the last two decades and are extremely excited about settling down in Lincoln and finding a charity or community involvement group(s) to become involved with.

What is your area of interest or research?
With respect to architecture, my main area of interest would be the use of landscape.

What is your inspiration?
I’m inspired by something different every day. It may be the excellent work of a colleague, a thought, quote, image or conversation. The source of inspiration is less important than being inspired by something on a daily basis.
