“We hired Clark Communications to help us open our Gaithersburg, Maryland location, the 17th in our family of restaurants, and in my 18 years since starting this company we’ve never had a better opening experience.
Clark Communications worked with community leaders, the media and elected officials to ensure every aspect of the opening delivered the right messages to the demographic we wanted to reach. They even arranged for the Mayor to proclaim July 9 Not Your Average Joe’s day, and today we value them as a key business partner.”
“Our association hired Clark Communications for a single project in 1999. Once we saw the astonishing results they achieved we decided to outsource our entire communications department to them. Never in our history have we received more positive publicity, not only across the nation but internationally as well.
Communications to our constituents is greatly improved and special projects are handled expertly, to perfection and with great ongoing results. NAMA could not be more pleased with our relationship and we highly recommend Clark Communications for your marketing, PR and communications needs.”
“Clark Communications does fabulous work. For several years I’ve watched them come up with creative campaigns that solve problems and deliver results. I think the world of what they have accomplished for us, and can’t recommend them enough!”
"The membership of NAMA is certainly getting their money's worth as our national trade association is on the job of changing consumer's views of vending. So don't forget to congratulate Jackie Clark on the excellent job she is doing for you."
"I have worked with the professionals at Clark Communications for nearly ten years and have benefited from their innovative, creative, and personal commitment to client needs. I recommend Clark Communications without reservation.
They are an insightful and creative team of professionals that quickly become a valuable asset for their clients!"
"I have observed the work of Clark Communications over the last several years in a capacity unrelated to my position as Mayor of Carol Stream; I can honestly say that they have shown an enthusiasm and dedicated work ethic that has guaranteed extensive media results, both in the Chicago area and across the country."
"Congratulations are in order for Jackie Clark and Clark Communications who made this excellent broadcast come about. Jackie contacted The History Channel prior to last year's National Expo and told them there was a big story to tell about our industry...
This marks the second year in a row that Jackie has managed to get our industry some positive media attention. Last year, she convinced The Food Network to produce a show about vending."
"Jackie's responsiveness, willingness to help, and incredible knowledge of the industry was invaluable to us in this production. We could not have made this show without her."
"When Prime Time Live and the United Food & Workers Union teamed up to launch a distorted and vicious attack on Food Lion, Jackie Clark played an invaluable and key role in helping with Food Lion's response.
She was tireless and relentless in her dedication to the cause. Her creative efforts in working with governmental agencies, Congress, responsible media and the general public enabled us to successfully weather an attack intended to destroy the company."
"As Chairman of the NAMA Board of Directors and Chairman of the NAMA Balanced for Life Committee, I've had the chance to work with Clark Communications on a variety of projects, and I can say without exception that you won't find a more dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate team working on your behalf."
"As a former member of the Board of Directors for NAMA, I saw first-hand the work they did for our industry. They generated more positive media coverage about our industry than we've ever received in our organization's 75-year history, which has significantly improved the image consumers have about vending.
They also added value to our membership by creating the overwhelmingly successful health and wellness initiative Balanced for Life. They're great folks to work with, which is why they were the first firm I went to when I wanted a company to help us grow. They did a great job for us, and I would recommend them highly to anyone else who wants help growing their business."
"Thank you for all the great work by you and your company in support of NAMA. It is a pleasure to work with such a professional organization in support of our great industry."
"I have known Jackie Clark since she became involved with the vending industry and know her to be a fast learner and very knowledgeable about our industry. She has managed many assignments with NAMA and others involved in the industry, and the results have received high praise.
Even at my earliest assignment working with Jackie in 1999, at 5:00 a.m. doing a news broadcast in Washington, DC concerning the latest design of a coffee vending machine, I experienced her ability to make the connection between the technical aspects of vending machines and the interests of consumers.
I have also had the opportunity to work with several PR firms and have not found anyone more energetic and devoted to intelligently promoting the cause or product that is assigned."
"Balanced for Life is not only an outstanding program, it is the most valuable resource NAMA has ever created for its members."
"Balanced for Life is among the most important achievements of today's $45 billion vending industry. The BFL program developed by Clark Communications has positioned the vending industry on the right side of the food and health debate.
It has also enabled the industry to hit the news media with the message that the vending trade is responsible, and a good corporate citizen, significantly changing the way people perceive our industry."
"When I started working with Clark Communications in the early '90s, I saw right away the fantastic results they deliver. When I became the President and CEO of Earth Force, one of my first actions was to contract with Clark Communications to support our partnership with General Motors.
I knew that for the program to be successful we needed to generate outstanding media coverage for the program. The team at Clark Communications gave us the best chance to meet those needs. Year after year they consistently delivered exceptional results that we were proud to share with GM and I recommend them highly."
"Clark Communications served the American Nuclear Society (ANS) in multiple ways during the past year. Particularly noteworthy was their support to the ANS response to the events surrounding the Japanese reactors impacted by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Their efforts provided favorable and wide-spread media coverage of ANS personnel and activities."
"Clark Communication did a marvelous job in assisting the American Nuclear Society in helping disseminate our report on the Fukushima Accident in Japan.
They provide an extremely professional, timely and useful service to our professional society in its mission to inform the general public about the facts related to these events in Japan."
"Jackie and Fritz, Your expertise and special knowledge of public outreach and the inner workings and hidden mechanisms of media protocol have significantly expanded the face of ANS with the general public.
You have 'branded' ANS as a major player in the nuclear science and technology society. Thank you!"
"I credit the experts at Clark Communications with assisting the Dispensary of Hope in our transition from a regional nonprofit effort to a national brand with national impact.
Bravo, Clark Communications, for your astute leadership, tireless work, and vision as you invest into our mission to bring hope to those in need of medication, while partnering with some of the nation's largest healthcare corporations."
