Jim Clark '79


I was raised in central South Dakota and southwest Minnesota. My wife Sue and I have been married for over 40 years and have three boys, all of whom attended Minnesota State Mankato like Sue and me. I started my career in Human Resources with Pillsbury/Green Giant and then Brown Printing. I went into sales and sales management with Prudential and then Principal Financial Group. My journey included a corporate reengineering program and Senior Vice President positions.  I have been on the Foundation Board for eight years and have enjoyed working with a tremendous team that is making a difference for all people who touch the university in many different capacities.
