Dr. Andrew Clark was named the Interim Chief Executive Officer of the AVMA PLIT on August 26, 2016. In his new role, Dr. Clark is responsible for the business operations of the Trust. Dr. Clark succeeded Dr. Janet Donlin, who was named executive vice president/chief executive officer of the AVMA. Previously, Dr. Clark served on the PLIT Board of Trustees for more than 12 years and most recently as the Trust Chair. During his tenure, he led many important initiatives for both veterinary and student members.

Prior to his work with the PLIT, Dr. Clark was a highly respected equine practitioner and ran his own successful veterinary practice. When a serious injury effectively ended his career as a practicing veterinarian, Dr. Clark committed to remain active in the veterinary profession and pursued an MBA. He now runs Virtual CEO, a consulting firm that provides veterinary businesses with executive-level thinking, planning and strategy.

As a leader in the profession, Dr. Clark truly understands the importance of the protection that the PLIT provides for veterinarians. “I am honored to be the PLIT’s interim CEO,” Dr. Clark said. “The PLIT-sponsored offerings play a vital role in the lives of veterinarians at every point in their careers. It’s all about giving members peace of mind as they go about their day-to-day work and lives.”

Outside of the PLIT, Dr. Clark provides business coaching, solutions, strategies, and development for equine veterinary businesses in 12 states, two Canadian Provinces, as well as clients in Europe. His consulting work is diverse, from business coaching with individuals, to consulting and advisory work with fortune 500 companies. Additionally, he facilitates three Veterinary Management Groups and is a very active speaker in educational, industry and motivational venues. He is an active fund raiser for the Markey Cancer Foundation in Lexington, Kentucky and sits on the Board of Directors of the Kentucky Horse park.
