Clark Savage



Clark graduated with a degree in accounting from a California State University in 1982 and went on to complete a master's degree in federal income tax from Golden Gate University in 1986. Clark was admitted to practice as California Certified Public Accountant in 1985. In the early 1990s Clark became interested in valuation and litigation services and undertook formal study in these areas. In 2002 he passed the accreditation in business valuation exam and earned the ABV designation sanctioned by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
In 2006 Clark achieved the highest level in valuation of closely held companies by earning his accreditation as a Senior Appraiser for closely held companies as sanctioned by the American Society of Appraisers. This program requires over 10,000 hours of documented work in business valuation, a peer review of work product, and extensive coursework along with several examinations. Recertification is required every five years. The investment of time and study surpasses that of earning a California CPA license.
In the mid-1990s Clark was granted a California lifetime college teaching credential in accounting, Clark has taught courses both at Hartnell Junior College and California State University Monterey Bay. This experience helped him to understand the challenges of presenting complex financial topics.
In 2008 Clark completed the financial forensics Academy presented by the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts. This is a full week on-site training course and includes a comprehensive examination. Clark was granted a Certificate in Financial Forensics by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants in 2009.
In the 25 years since Clark began his career emphasis in valuation and litigation, he has testified in numerous valuation, financial forensic and business damages cases. He has also been called upon to work on criminal cases and tax related matters. Clark is a frequent speaker on tax and valuation issues.
Clark holds executive board positions for several not-for-profit organizations involved in professional education and research for childhood cancers. Clark is married and has raised three daughters in Monterey.
