Our People


Clark Brown

Senior Director of Research, Member & Industry Insights

Clark got his start in market research in high school at the family business, conducting mystery shops and store audits, so you can say research is in his blood. He’s a data geek in the most positive sense of the word and will admit that Excel is a favorite program. He’s inquisitive and enjoys problem-solving so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that The Thinker by Rodin is a favorite sculpture. Just like people love puppies, Clark loves market research. Working at the NGF has allowed Clark to marry his passion for golf with his love of research (clever “thinking” on his behalf). When he’s not in the office, he can often be found at the soccer fields with his wife supporting their two kids or on the links with family and friends.
