Marlene Clark

helps executives find the best in themselves. As a highly-trained, experienced business consultant, she is laser-focused on getting to the core of an issue and helping to find solutions. The result is long-term success for the individual and the organization. Marlene knows how to listen, and she’s not afraid to ask the tough questions. She knows that success comes from doing the hard work to uncover and deal with the blind spots within a company’s culture.

Marlene shines within organizations, working with their leaders either through a program or in one-on-one coaching. C-level executives are at the top of the chain, and that’s often an isolated place. Marlene works with highly talented and successful executives who want perceptive feedback to accelerate their performance. She looks past the title and into the person, giving them the support they need to grow.

Marlene offers something many consultants strive for – tangible value and 100% accountability for leaders and their teams. She looks at limitations and helps turn those into opportunities. She is a positive change agent, who believes that everyone can have fulfillment and top performance if they do the work.

With a major in sociology, Marlene received her formal education from Texas State University. She moved on to become a personal trainer and tri-athlete. She has participated in hundreds of hours of professional industry specific education.

Her consulting and coaching practice has developed over the past 20 years to include an impressive client roster that includes top CEOs and presidents of corporations in the U.S. and Canada. As president of Momentum Consulting, Marlene leads the teams for both the individual and business consulting areas.

Marlene’s Core Values are: Fairness, Partnership and Honesty

Craig Clark 

specializes in people. He has spent the past 30 years becoming a foremost expert on the science of human dynamics in the business world. But he is not a theorist; he is a practical change agent who goes inside organizations to drive and positively affect performance by developing and helping to implement successful strategies.

Craig believes that dignity and respect are the birthrights of every individual. His work with people and organizations is designed to honor that conviction. He also believes that every client is entitled to a real and measurable return on the resources they expend with business consultants. Those two ideals work in partnership and are the foundation for the past and future success of Momentum.

After years as an individual consultant, Craig turned to corporate consulting, recognizing that any significant world change could occur only at an organizational level. He has since spent years developing a transformational approach to solving organizational problems with successful strategies in a variety of cultures, countries and languages.

Craig’s résumé proves that techniques for improving human communications are not bound by oceans or languages. He has applied his skills across diverse groups and cultures – from Moscow to South America, from the United Kingdom to Australia, including an 18-month off-site project in Indonesia.

As founder and CEO, Craig oversees operations both in the U.S. and abroad. He is focused on growing Momentum’s corporate discipline and leading teams in multi-day breakthrough programs that generate long-term, measurable results.

Craig’s Core Values are: Dignity, Spirit and Loyalty
