2022 HW Vanguard: Gary Clark


As Chief Operating Officer, Gary Clark is at the forefront of Sierra Pacific Mortgage’s growth and has led the way by recognizing the organizational strengths, galvanizing them with improved processes and then taking them to market. Clark has worked in virtually every element of mortgage lending — starting in the industry over 40 years ago and developing his expertise in everything from governance and risk management to policy and advocacy. The broad spectrum of his accomplishments distinguishes Clark as an exemplary leader. Clark champions the Mortgage Action Alliance grassroots advocacy network, which allows constituents to play an active role in shaping legislation and regulations.

Clark was awarded the designation of certified mortgage banker by the Mortgage Bankers Association in 2006, and he continues to be a tireless advocate for the mortgage industry through his service on the MBA Residential Board of Governors.

What has been the secret to your success?

When people come to me for answers, I always try to provide the background and “why” behind the decision. I think any successful individual will go beyond what is asked and deliver more than what is required.
