Karen Larson, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs knows Clarke and the industry well with over 20 years with the company. She began as a seasonal field technician and advanced through lab tech, sales and administrative support positions before coming to overseeing all of Clarke’s registrations. It has given Karen solid understanding of the needs and process for stewarding new products through development, registration and market entry.
She led the effort that made Natular the first larvicide to be reviewed under the U.S. EPA Reduced Risk program along with obtaining Organic Materials Review Institute Listing (OMRI) for the proudct as well in 2009. This was followed by the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2010. She and her husband Eric manage two very active elementary-age children, Emma and Evan. In her ‘spare’ time Karen enjoys gardening and reading.
