Meet Credo’s owner, Clint Reilly. A San Francisco businessman and the owner of the iconic Merchants Exchange building in downtown San Francisco, he is also noted for his background as one of the West’s pioneers in the field of political consulting. During his career as one of California’s most sought after strategists, Reilly managed campaigns for leaders such as Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dick Riordan, Tony Coelho and the state Democratic Party. Reilly retired from political consulting in 1995.
Today, Clint Reilly owns and operates a rapidly growing commercial real estate and hospitality business and remains active in a wide variety of civic and philanthropic endeavors. His combined companies, based at the historic Merchants Exchange Building, include a wholly-owned commercial real estate portfolio that includes the Merchants Exchange. Reilly’s hospitality portfolio is highlighted by the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom, located on the 15th floor of the Merchants Exchange, and Credo Restaurant, situated at Pine and Montgomery Streets.
Throughout his career, Clint Reilly’s passion has remained Democratic political causes, social justice and civic engagement. He is a highly respected informal adviser to candidates for elective office, and a supporter of numerous charitable undertakings. Reilly is the former President of the Board of Directors for Catholic Charities for the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the founder of the Clint Reilly Scholarship Fund, which provides support for inner-city youths attending private Catholic high schools. Notably, Reilly has twice battled major Bay Area newspaper conglomerates in federal anti-trust court to preserve media competition in San Francisco and its environs.
