Sean Clark
Sean ClarkChief Operations Officer

Sean Clark began his career at a Philadelphia-based non-profit, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a nationally prominent civil rights advocacy organization specializing in free speech in higher education. Sean would build the foundation for a successful career over the next 11 years there, rising through the ranks to Vice President, before deciding to explore opportunities in the private sector. In 2019, Sean took a position at a biotech company situated in the University City area of Philadelphia called Integral Molecular, and nine months later, a pandemic began to spread over the globe. As Director of Human Resources, he played a key role in helping the company grow to almost twice its pre-pandemic size as demand spiked for the unique products and services Integral offered to the ongoing research efforts into the new disease. Throughout all these years, though, Sean had a desire to return to the non-profit sector and finally made the move to do so in 2023 by taking on the role of Chief Operations Officer at the Center for Families and Relationships. In this new position, Sean is looking to bring his robust knowledge and diverse background to help the organization reach new heights. Sean has a passion for giving back to the community and does so by serving as a volunteer board member on several non-profit Boards of Directors. He is also an active Freemason holding membership in two local Lodges, Rising Sun No. 15 in Haddonfield, NJ and Columbia No. 91 in Philadelphia, PA.
