Clark has been providing innovative solutions to his clients and employers since 1995.
From installing a half duplex communications loop for an artillery battery, to managing the design and installation of a four-hundred cell site network; Clark’s drive and initiative has made him a key player in all the operational and management positions he has filled.
As a technician in both military and civilian rolls Clark is a proven leader and technical expert in field operations. His maintenance
initiatives resulted in exceeding MTTR and maintenance goals. His understanding of hardware life cycle management
reinvented the idea of preventive maintenance within the organizations he has worked, and reduced operational expenses.
As a manager, Clark's strategic driven style of management massively reduced materials and labor costs while speeding delivery of sites on air.
