Cleve Lewis, Pax8

I love that Pax8 is a pioneer in the cloud space and that I get to be part of a team that’s building this incredible company.


I help our partners leverage new cloud capabilities that give them a competitive advantage in the market.


I am named after Cleveland Abbott, my mother’s track coach and my father’s football coach at Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama. While he passed away the year I was born, he built a great legacy at the university. He was the first African-American member of the USA Track & Field Board and the first African-American member of the United States Olympic Committee in 1946. My full name is Cleveland Abbott Lewis.


The smartest person I know is my brother, Bill Lewis. Since I was a kid, he always had the answers, no matter the topic.


The best piece of advice I would give is talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.
