CFO Profile: Brett Clark | Mpact

Brett Clark | Chief Financial Officer | Mpact

Brett Clark - current CFO of Mpact - feels like keeping things simple and communicating are some of his strengths. After joining Mpact in July 2012, Clark received a lot of freedom from the CEO to sort out issues. His extensive history in Finance related roles can be a reason for the trust he receives. Clark worked, among others, as a Finance Director at Clover Industries, Unihold Limited and Clover industries. For the latter, he also served as the Chief Financial Officer.

Clark says to see the way he manages his team as the key to his success. "I try to give people responsibility, so I only have to deal with major issues." Mr. Clark holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from University of Port Elizabeth. For his role as the CFO of Santova, he was nominated for the CFO Awards 2015.
