OUR TEAM

GerardGerard Clesi, Owner

An expert in foundation repair and modification, Gerard Clesi is the owner of Clesi Foundations. He began his career in the field over 30 ago under the training of his mentor, Walter Clifton. At the time, the business was called Clifton Foundation Repair, but as Gerard’s experience and leadership duties grew, the company evolved into Clifton and Clesi Foundations. Upon the retirement of his partner, Gerard took over full duties, and the business became today’s Clesi Foundations, LLC.

Gerard came into the foundation business through his previous career as a successful realtor in St. Tammany Parish. Gerard’s background in real estate still rewards him with an understanding of the importance of a properties’ resale value and how foundation modifications can boost these values. His hands-on approach and personal care have contributed to the improvement of hundreds of properties across the greater New Orleans area.

Gerard is a native of New Orleans and an avid supporter of LSU athletics. He is the father of two and now lives in Mandeville.
