President of Council - Cliff Mears


Cliff received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of Toledo. He came to Mansfield when he was recruited out of MBA school to work in the Industrial Relations Department of the former Westinghouse Company.

 Cliff has worked with some of the largest and most prestigious organizations in the country, including The National Geographic Society and The Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, Dun & Bradstreet and Revlon Health Care in New York, and Armour Pharmaceuticals in Kankakee, Illinois. While at R. R. Donnelley and Sons Company for more than 25 years, he held positions of increasingly greater responsibility including Data Analyst in Finance. He worked at the former General Motors plant in Mansfield in Indirect Materials Management. Cliff taught Communications courses at the University of Toledo and at North Central State College for more than 20 years, and is currently retired from Skybox Packaging LLC in Mansfield.

 His interest in perpetuating the arts in the city is demonstrated by his commitment to the Mansfield Playhouse, which is the second oldest continuously-producing community theatre in the state. He  served on the Board of Trustees for over 20 years, most of those years as their Business Manager.

Cliff brings the business, finance and communications skills he acquired at these organizations to Mansfield City Council to serve the best interests of all its citizens.

 Cliff is a member of St. Peter’s Catholic Church. He has been married to his wife Cheryl for nearly 40 years, and they are proud to say they raised their two successful children Katie and Daniel here in Mansfield.
