Frank Clarke is Vice President, Strategic Development and Key Accounts and a Clarke family shareholder.
He began his career with Clarke unofficially at the age of 10, working for his father at the first Clarke operations center in La Grange, IL. His job: washing trucks and cleaning the yard. By age 16 he was scheduling mosquito control service work and performing service applications. Formal education took Frank to Ole’ Miss where he graduated with a degree in Finance and Banking. Before coming back to the family business, he spent several years in New Orleans working in banking and then opened his own Sonitrol security alarm franchise.
In 1996, Frank officially joined Clarke to build the company’s product and service customer base in Florida. In 2011, he was named Vice President, Strategic Development and Key Accounts, working with some of the large abatement districts and public mosquito control programs across the United States and Caribbean. Frank and wife, Cara have been married for over 10 years. Frank has four wonderful, adult children and the family loves to travel when he’s not attending to customer needs or public health emergencies. He also enjoys spending time hunting with his brothers, boating and fishing. As long as friends and family are around, every weekend is his perfect weekend.
We put integrity first, always. This is our most foundational principle, from which everything else grows. At Clarke, we are deeply proud of doing the right thing, even when it’s hard, and when no one is watching.
