A lighter moment in the early days of ClarkPowell... Apparently it was "Plaid day".

A lighter moment in the early days of ClarkPowell... Apparently it was "Plaid day".

ClarkPowell was founded by Read Clark, Don Norwood and David Powell in 1983 when a need was seen for a company that would offer exceptional service and superior value to A/V professionals throughout the Carolinas.  We pride ourselves on our professionalism, knowledge and ability to help our clients get the systems and functionality that they need.

With a Marine Corps background and a dedication to hard work, Read Clark was an excellent leader who took great pride in the company and all of his employees. The culture of "ClarkPowell Family" is a cornerstone of our success and remains solidly in place today. 

An employee of ClarkPowell almost since the beginning, Read’s daughter Stephanie (Clark) Bluhm took over the presidency in 2010.  Stephanie led with wisdom, sensibility and a dedication to the success of ClarkPowell.

Susan (Clark) Pinch became president following Stephanie’s unexpected passing in February of 2016.   Susan has been with ClarkPowell since 1995 and is looking forward to a bright future for the company.
