He manages the firm’s operations in this dynamic regional hub and helps clients, including multinational firms and their associations, to navigate the evolving regulatory, policy, and political environment across the region, including within the APEC and ASEAN economic forums. Prior to joining C&M International, he served at the National Economic Council of the Obama White House. There, he managed the West Wing “war room” to coordinate the administration’s strategy, outreach, and communications efforts on behalf of the president’s trade agenda, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Previously, Clark was chief of staff at the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), where he helped guide strategic planning to fulfill the agency’s mission of linking U.S. businesses to infrastructure opportunities in emerging markets. As a member of USTDA’s senior executive team, he advised on deployment of international grant assistance, strategic outreach and communications, legislative strategy, and was the agency liaison to The White House, the National Security Council, and other U.S. government entities. He has represented the U.S. government in bilateral settings and international events on five continents.

Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Clark oversaw four departments and was part of the senior management team for the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. He went on to serve as the senior advisor to the executive director for the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee. Clark traveled extensively on behalf of The White House, staffing President Obama on official international visits that have included trips to China, Burma, Laos, India, Brazil, and Iraq.

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Clark previously worked as a commercial litigation associate at a nationally-recognized Arkansas firm and served as a federal law clerk to U.S. District Judge D.P. Marshall Jr. of the Eastern District of Arkansas. He also served in the Office of Governor Mike Beebe as deputy communications director.
