PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — F&I products provider National Auto Care has named Laura Clark as its new CFO. Clark will parlay her 30-plus years in finance into a new role in which she will lead NAC’s finance and accounting operations and provide strategic oversight as the company sets its sights on “significant” growth in the coming years, according to the announcement.
Clark has served in the roles of vice president, senior vice president, COO, CFO, and president for various previous employers, including a 20-year tenure with Allstate. She holds an MBA and CPA license and brings a track record of scaling high-profile businesses.
“We are excited to have Laura join NAC. She complements our strong partner-focused culture, and we believe her impressive reputation for execution and achieving results makes Laura the right choice to lead our financial strategy,” said Tony Wanderon, president and CEO of NAC. “Her skillset fits well with the strength of our organization and her broad range of capabilities will complement our experienced management team as we continue to deliver industry leading returns for our partners and their dealers.”
Clark said she is looking forward to the opportunities she’ll face in this new role.
“I never make decisions I am not excited about. I believe NAC has a great business model poised for growth with a talented leadership team,” she said. “The vision and strategies align well with my skills and passion. The growth possibilities are limitless, and I am excited to become part of the team.”
Additionally, because of her previous work experience with Wanderon at Allstate, “there’s a level of trust there, which fosters a strong business relationship and aids in accelerating future growth,” Clark said.
