Mr Clough was born in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and spent all of his early life living in the capital, Port Moresby. As one of the earlier citizens of the newly independent Papua New Guinea in 1975, Mr Clough is proud of his PNG heritage.
Leaving to work in Australia after completing his education and beginning his working career, his plan to spend a short time overseas gaining experience in a larger market was derailed when his career took off and he met his wife.
After forging a successful retail career in one of Australia’s biggest companies, he returned to PNG to add value back to his family’s business and to the community.
As the Chairman for one of PNG’s most reputable businesses, he also maintains a director role on the Sir Brian Bell Foundation while also sitting on the Council of St John PNG and the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce. The Sir Brian Bell Foundation is a not for profit organisation that provides significant support to programs, projects, organisations and individuals to improve the health and education outcomes for Papua New Guineans.
