YOU ALWAYS GET THE “A” TEAM

When you work with Clark Creative Group, you always get the “A” team. At larger agencies, clients are often assigned the “B” or even “C” team. With a smaller full-service marketing firm, you get personalized attention from experienced professionals, which results in unparalleled creative and solid tactical strategies.

OUR TEAM


President + Creative Director

Fred Clark

Fred sits at the center of all things creative. As an art-lover who started out in broadcast television, and as Clark Creative Group’s creative engine, Fred hasn’t stopped cultivating and producing original ideas since the first day CCG opened its doors in 1992. Whether it be marketing strategy, branding companies, directing shoots or writing scripts, Fred’s innovative touch is unlimited and infectious. Oftentimes he can be found behind a director’s chair, but between takes Fred is running half marathons, jamming with his kids’ band, enjoying a weekend at the lake and contributing to Omaha's contemporary arts community.

WE HAVE STAYING POWER

Clark Creative Group has a long history of success. This applies to not just how long we’ve been in business, but how long our clients have been with us, and how long we have had the same cohesive team. The vast majority of our full-service clients stay with us 12-plus years, with several averaging more than 20 years. We are also widely known in our industry as a great place to work: that’s why 60% of our team has been with us a decade or more. This kind of track record allows us to work more effectively and efficiently for our clients.

Join Our Team

Clark Creative Group has a commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity that spans nearly three decades. Long before these were buzz words in the business world, we strived to create a workforce that is diverse, positive and supportive for all, regardless of background, ethnicity, race or sexual orientation. This has always been important to us, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because we have always recognized that it is critical to have as many perspectives at the table as possible.

This attitude extends to client work as well: We take seriously our role to consider diversity when putting together campaigns, websites, marketing materials and more, and put a great deal of thought into getting this just right. We also believe in work-life balance. Whether raising young children, enjoying a bike racing hobby or catching a yoga class over lunch, we’re here to help our team achieve the balance they crave, and this translates into a happy, healthy and productive team that is ready to serve our clients.
