Clark started his career with multidisciplinary design firm Baskervill more than 25 years ago, following a five-year stint in the U.S. Air Force, and was named Baskervill’s president in 2004.

EDUCATION: Virginia Military Institute (bachelor’s degree), William & Mary (MBA)
FIRST JOB: My first job after college was as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, working on large-scale design and construction projects at various military installations worldwide.
FAVORITE SONG: “Rock and Roll,” by Led Zeppelin. The opening is so uniquely distinctive and not to be mistaken for any other song.
