Introducing Bob Clark (MBA 79) Executive Director of the Pepperdine University Alumni Affairs
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
GRAZIADIO SCHOOL ALUMNUS BOB CLARK (MBA '79) has taken the reins of the Pepperdine University Alumni Affairs as the newly appointed executive director. The alumni association is over 90,000 alumni strong and includes 30 regional alumni chapters in the U.S. and abroad. These groups host 250 alumni events annually, welcoming alumni from all schools, parents, family, and friends of the University.
"Bob Clark has served Pepperdine for seven years and knows Pepperdine very well," says Lou Drobnick, executive vice chancellor of advancement. "He has a fabulous appreciation for the University's Christian heritage, our mission, and the diversity and interests of our undergraduate and graduate alumni."
Clark was the founding president of the Alumni Leadership Council (ALC) and served on the ALC executive board for four years. He is the proud parent of three Pepperdine graduates: daughter Marshawn (MBA '97) and sons Jonathan ('08) and Benjamin ('10). Bob and his wife Amy were instrumental in the creation and development of the Colorado "Mile High" Waves chapter. They have served on the Seaver Parents Council and Bob has worked closely with the alumni affairs office over the past seven years.
Clark and his staff, in collaboration with each of the five alumni affairs offices and the office of athletics, share Mr. Pepperdine's challenge to build a vibrant community of alumni and leaders who "will work diligently to carry out the ideals set before them while in our college and multiply my life's work a thousand fold, or more as the number of alumni increases."
