Board Bios



Clarence Moore, Jr. is a man of his purpose, a lifestyle entrepreneur whose passion is helping others. Clarence graduated from Grinnell College in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology. His purpose was shaped long before his academic and sports achievements in college.

Returning to Chicago upon graduation, Clarence began his career as a Fitness Professional running his own business focusing on functional fitness with everyday working people and sports specific training with youth and professional athletes.

Entrepreneurship came early for Clarence, spending time working in his father’s businesses- learning management, bookkeeping, and other valuable lessons. Clarence is always looking for ways to help more people transform their lives. He has created or partnered with several entrepreneurial ventures centered on fitness and technology to further his mission in being available to help more people transform their lives.

Making strategic partnerships and creating business opportunities is a skill that will be valuable to The ACE Project and its growth. Clarence is also bringing his people skills and expertise in business to serve as the role of Treasurer for ACE’s board of directors.
