Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Ms. Clarke found her niche for business operations and organizational design while working a variety of companies. After having many conversations with business owners and executives who complained about employees and freelancers that were unreliable, under-trained and unprofessional, Ms. Clarke wanted to do something to help repair the reputation of support teams. She also wanted business owners and executives to understand that teams provide daily operations support is a important and necessary investment to businesses. Thus, Clarke Executive Services Group was created.
