Clayton McDaniel

Clayton McDaniel is the Associate Vice President overseeing Ad Operations at The Prosper Group, with fifteen years of digital marketing experience.

Prior to joining The Prosper Group, Clayton held a long-term position in IT at a Fortune 500 company, managing internal and customer-facing systems. He then switched careers and started a local brick and mortar retail store with his wife, where he served as the "chief data cruncher," analyzing all aspects of the business, from operations to marketing and finance. During this time, he became an expert in online advertising, particularly in e-commerce and email acquisition. His blend of corporate America and "main street" business experience brings a unique perspective to our clients.

Clayton is an Indiana native but has spent a significant part of his life in Iowa and Minnesota. He graduated from Iowa State University with a BS in Computer Science and later obtained his Master's in Business Administration.

Clayton lives in St. George, UT, with his wife Alison, daughter Carly, son Max, and their golden doodles Milo & Asher. Outside of work, Clayton enjoys hiking, mountain biking, and exploring the great southwest. He also enjoys watching dumb comedy and attending IndyCar races whenever he can.
