Francis joined Clark & Associates, Inc. in March of 2010 as a video technician. After learning the ropes of the business, and earning his Bachelors in International Business from the College of Charleston, he quickly climbed the ranks, holding such titles as Videographer, Sales Manager, and now General Manager. He oversees operations at the office and does an excellent job of improving and expanding the business while keeping everyone happy, including his team! He candidly tells us his favorite things about working at C&A is, "First, my relationship with Lynn and her late husband Reid. They are like family to me and have always been so helpful and encouraging to me. Second is I love being involved with every aspect of the business, from daily operations to implementing strategies to grow this amazing company. I feel very fortunate to have been directly involved in implementing ideas successfully into our daily business operations."
Francis was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and was raised in Port St. Lucie, Florida. He and his wife Shannon (
BSN, Risk Coordinator at MUSC)

knows that I love to surf, competitively and recreationally".
Francis is also a champion surfer in the state of South Carolina. " I divide my weekends between spending time with my girls and paddling out at the "Washout' on Folly Beach."
We couldn't be more proud to have Francis leading the team!
