Clark originally founded York Independents, Inc. in 2001 to help others access knowledge and strategies to secure their financial future. Originally trained as an engineer, Clark says the attacks of Sept 11, 2001, awakened a desire in him to find a way to more clearly help the people in his community, and he changed his focus to financial services. Today he is an Investment Adviser Representative, having passed the Series 65 securities exam and is licensed in Pennsylvania and North Carolina for health and life insurances as well as fixed and variable annuities. Currently a Ph.D. candidate, he is an adjunct Professor of Business of Southern New Hampshire University.

“It is my profound pleasure to be elected to leverage my years of financial planning experience in service to the IARFC,” comments Clark. “As a member of the MRFC Board, I will do all I can to elevate professionalism in the financial service industry in general and in the financial planning profession specifically.”

Outside of his career involvements, Clark is a member of many clubs, including Mensa International and Intertel, and he has served the community through Rotary International, the York Chamber of Commerce (where he served as an Ambassador), and the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.  Clark is also a member of the Benevolent & Protective Order of the Elks (B.P.O.E.). He is a sought after lecturer and author with a recent publication Bridge the Gap: Planning for a Confident Retirement.

Historically speaking, the IARFC submitted the MRFC credential to obtain vetted approval from the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA) in 2018. For the IARFC, this intense verification process ensured that their qualified consultants were being represented as true-tested financial professionals. By engaging an MRFC for financial direction, consumers are assured that they are dealing with an ethical, educated, and experienced consultant – who remains a life-long learner in the field of financial services and who has their best interest at heart.

“A main stay of any Board of Directors is to have qualified experienced individuals who come together for a common mission,” states MRFC Board Chair Robert D. Lawson, MRFC®. “Sean Clark’s election brings to the Board an invigoration of purpose and a commitment to promoting the MRFC Credential. I welcome him wholeheartedly!”
