Clive studied at the New York University College of Arts and Science and later at the Harvard Law School. After graduating, Clive started working in a small firm and then later worked as an assistant counsel in “Columbia Records”. This was the time when Clive’s net worth began growing, continuing in 1965 when Davis became the administrative vice-president and general manager, soon being appointed president, and this had a huge impact on the growth of Clive Davis’ net worth. While Davis was working at the “Columbia Records”, he signed up with such artists as “Aerosmith”, “Blood, Sweat & Tears”, “Pink Floyd”, “The Chamber Brothers” and others.

In 1974 Clive founded his own record label, called “Arista Records”. Davis has signed many artists to “Arista Records”, but one of the most famous singers was Whitney Houston, who Clive saw performing and invited her to become a part of “Arista Records”. The fact that Whitney Houston became one of the most successful artists in the music industry, influenced the growth of Davis’s net worth a lot. As mentioned before, Davis is also a founder of another record label, entitled “J Records”, soon after founding which Davis started working with “Sony Music Entertainments” and now he is the CEO of this company. This is one of the main sources of Clive Davis’ net worth.

#Quote
1 My "act" was schoolwork. I was your basic, garden-variety, ambitious, upwardly mobile, hard-working Jewish boy from Brooklyn. I was bound to go beyond my parents. It was simply the way things were.
2 [About Whitney Houston's smoking, and her relationship with Bobby Brown]] [Her smoking] is like leaving a priceless Stradivarius out in the sun . . . I don't believe Bobby caused Whitney's problems, but the two of them brought out the worst in each other.
3 [To Barry Manilow ] If you were Irving Berlin, we would know it by now!
4 [on Whitney Houston] You wait for a voice like that for a lifetime. You wait for a face like that, a smile like that, a presence like that, for a lifetime. And when one person embodies it all, well, it takes your breath away.
