Clark & Associates Celebrates 25th Anniversary

RENO, Nev. (April 2017) Clark & Associates, a woman-owned health and life insurance brokerage, celebrates its 25th anniversary with an entrepreneurial empowerment campaign. A runner-up for the 2017 Reno-Gazette Journal Business of the Year and finalist for Best Places to Work awards, the company remains an industry leader and advocate for ambitious local business owners.

“Twenty-five years with a woman-owned business means twenty-five years of extremely hard work challenges, the passing of two major healthcare reform laws and a serious recession,” said Valerie Clark president and CEO of Clark & Associates. “We are a team that has stuck together through highs and lows to emerge bigger, better and stronger than ever before.”

With a mission to help Nevada entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, the campaign, titled “Empowering Entrepreneurs” heroes two long-time clients through anecdotal videos and print advertisements. Owners of Great Basin Brewing Company, Nevada’s oldest brewery; and Adventure Pet, an outdoor dog excursion business; explain how Clark & Associates has helped grow their businesses.

“Our job is to take care of the behind-the-scenes work so business owners can get back to what they enjoy,” said Clark. “We liked the idea of ‘empowerment,’ because entrepreneurs are often forced to deal with internal insurance and HR issues unrelated to the true passion of their businesses. We want to provide relief so entrepreneurs can do what they do best.”

By identifying issues and providing custom solutions for each of her clients, Clark has developed and grown a trio of companies: Clark & Associates, Altus Insurance Group and Solutions at Work.

Clark & Associates is a leader in insurance and workplace compliance and regulations, and an advocate for philanthropic causes. The company is involved with many local and national non-profit organizations, including The Children’s Cabinet, Bristlecone Family Resources, Care Chest of Northern Nevada, CAAW (Committee to Aid Abused Women), Human Services Network, The Nevada Women’s Fund, The American Heart Association and many more.
