75 Stories: Zack Reed, Marketing Manager
2021 marks the 75th Anniversary for Clark Construction Company. To celebrate, we’re using our employee’s voices to explain the impact Clark has made to our fellow teammates, communities, and clients. This is Zack’s story.
I started at Clark almost 16 years ago. At the time, this was a huge life change for me. I was recently married and pondering completely switching my career path to the construction industry. I was leaving behind coworkers and friends that I had worked with for eight years in my previous job. Over the years, Clark and its employees have become like a second family to me. I get to work with some of my best friends every day. How great is that?
The Clark team has been so supportive of my career and my family life. Whether it was allowing me to work a flexible schedule so that I could pick my children up on-time from daycare. Or, Jodi offering to print out a proposal for me so that I could be on time to a school event. Or, Jen using her creative mind to craft her latest graphic design or video piece to better represent Clark. My Clark family has been with me as a new construction employee, to becoming a dad, to raising a special needs daughter and a son, to supporting me through a divorce. The people at Clark are fantastic. They are my friends. They genuinely care about me and my family. They want to see me, and their other coworkers, succeed. When I came to Clark, I couldn’t have imagined my journey would be so rewarding.
