Greg Clark was born and raised in Alberta. He’s an entrepreneur, husband, father and community leader.
Greg has deep roots in our community. He grew up in Calgary, a city he still calls home. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, Greg developed a passion for politics and found himself working in the Alberta Legislature for the Leader of the Official Opposition, Laurence Decore. This experience gave Greg insight into how politics works, and how it often doesn't.
Greg switched gears and worked for several information technology companies before obtaining an entrance scholarship and completing his MBA where he earned top marks in his class. After graduation, Greg taught Business Management at the University of Calgary Faculty of Continuing Education.
Although Greg enjoyed teaching, he saw an opportunity to create a company that reflected his values. Together with two partners, they created the technology consulting firm C3 Associates. C3 has been very successful, earning Alberta Venture Fast Growth 50 honours in 2011 and 2012 and was named one of Canada's top 250 Information Technology companies by the Branham Group in 2012 and 2013.
Greg is also deeply involved in his community. He's served as co-chair of William Reid School Parent Council, coached his daughter's soccer team, volunteered with HomeFront and Calgary Reads, was Vice Chair of Distress Centre Calgary and co-founded the Calgary River Communities Action Group in response to the 2013 floods.
Over the years, Greg became deeply concerned about the future of Alberta and, like so many of us, had been searching for an alternative to the PCs. The Alberta Party presented an exciting opportunity to create a political party from the ground up that was focused on developing practical solutions to the issues Albertans care about. Greg sold his share of C3 to his partners and entered politics full-time. He was elected leader of the Alberta Party in 2013 and since then he has devoted his full-time leading the Alberta Party as a volunteer in order to make Alberta better.
Greg's true passion is his family. He is married to Jessica, a palliative care physician working at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. They are proud parents of two daughters who are attend public elementary schools in Calgary.
