Clive Denby Matthewson MNZM (born 1944), is a former New Zealand politician.

Matthewson was originally a member of the Labour Party, representing the Dunedin West seat.[1] He left Labour in 1995 to jointly establish the United New Zealand party with six other sitting MPs.[2] Matthewson became United's leader,[3] and when the party formed a coalition with the governing National Party in 1996 he was made a Cabinet Minister. In the 1996 election, Peter Dunne was the only United politician to keep his seat, and Matthewson did not return to Parliament.[3]

He was the Director of Development and Alumni Relations at the University of Otago from 2002 to 2008,[4] and between 23 July 2004 and 30 September 2008 was on the board of directors for the New Zealand Railways Corporation.[5][6]

Matthewson has a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Canterbury, completed in 1970.[7]
