A Goldie local like his fellow brokers, Clint covers the Northern Gold Coast patch of Main Beach, Southport, Runaway Bay, Labrador, Hope Island and everywhere in between.

He joins ResortBrokers off the back of two highly successful careers. First, as hooker for NRL clubs North Queensland Cowboys and Gold Coast Titans, and a second, equally impressive, career in alcohol sales.

Clint kicked off his first-grade debut with the Cowboys in 2006 before signing with the Titans for their inaugural season in 2007 and playing with them through to the end of 2008. Clint returned to the Cowboys for a second stint from 2009 before hanging up his boots for good at the end of the 2011 season. Though stepping off the field, Clint stayed on with the Cowboys in a business development role that set him on the upward professional trajectory he’s still on today. To transition from sports fields to commercial offices, he completed a Diploma of Management in 2013 and a Diploma of Business in 2016 while working fulltime.

Clint attributes his success on and off the field to qualities he learned as an elite sportsperson, but above all to his relentless optimism.

“I was never a player that was the biggest or fastest, so for me to be successful and overcome the challenges of a couple of season-ending injuries, you need a north star and mine was and still is positivity and the power of goal setting,” says the 40-year-old, who was born and bred on the Gold Coast.

“Professional sport is very goal orientated and you have to be driven to be successful. So, when you set yourself a goal you need to make the necessary sacrifices and prioritise what needs to be done to achieve it. The payoff is the elation you get when you do achieve it. It’s contagious, so you’re always trying to repeat it. I’ve taken that approach to all my commercial roles, setting a goal and really going after it.”

In six years of commercial life, attacking plays have served Clint well. After leaving his corporate role at the Cowboys, he held senior sales positions at Bacardi Martini and Pernod Ricard, before his most recent appointment as National Sales Manager for alcoholic seltzer brand Hard Fizz immediately prior to joining ResortBrokers.

“A lot of my sales techniques, discipline and determination comes from my sporting days,” he says. “You need hard work, consistency, time management and structure. Above all, success in sport, especially rugby league, comes down to effective teamwork. Loyalty, comradery and supporting every player alongside you is key.

“In alcohol sales, a great territory plan, customer call cycle and follow up, sets your structured week for success. These behaviours enabled me to again to find success after my professional sports career. The ability to work with the customer and align on a profitable deal is paramount. I can see a lot of my learned sales skills and behaviours transferring to my new role in management rights.”

As if life wasn’t already a handful with two (now three) young kids, Clint and his wife Hannah signed up for Season 13 of The Block in 2017. 

“It was 12 weeks of the most instance pressure cooker environment we’ve ever been in,” he says. “Painting and prepping for days on end, sometimes pulling all-nighters, as we raced to get each week’s presented room ready for the cameras, was stressful. Throw in having a TV crew follow your every step and conversation and it really starts to invade your personal space. Then each week your hard work is critiqued, questioned and judged and, to top it off, you have producers that pick and prod your personal relationship in the hope you’ll crack. I’m happy to say Hannah and I are still very happily married … and that we’d do it all over again in a heartbeat!” END
