At age only 23, Brooklyn-born, Cornell graduate, poker playing & French-speaking, G. Francis had already helped open and consult for some of the most iconic nightlife clubs in New York City (for example: Plumm, Marquee, Hudson Terrace, among others). After leaving New York, he became the only black bar owner, as well as one of the youngest, in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Pretty quickly, he received a lot of attention and was creatively consulting & getting sponsorships for people like Curren$y and others in the Southern Hip-Hop scene. Friends and several associates and clients thought of him as "an entrepreneur visionary" (and still do).
He began putting on events like Slick Rick's Birthday Party, shows at The House of Blues and Howlin' Wolf, Jet Life, Rap Shows & their VIP after-parties while also volunteering time at Louisiana's SPCA and organizing events for them as well (to see a full list, check out our media kit or client portfolio). His knack for business and networking gave him the opportunity to start consulting for large, nationally known clients such as MysterLand and Lights All Night.
Living a very fast-paced & often desired lifestyle, Francis Roth decided to put his efforts into building his very own company that specialized in experiential events and marketing called Clearport.
Clearport, Inc was founded in 2009, a business consulting firm which slowly over the years changed central locations, evolving into one of New Jersey's more interesting marketing agencies. His lifestyle is inherently tied into his business and it's one that is held by few but desired by many, giving the agency an authentic edge when discussing cultural standpoints.
