Tom Clark, President, Nationwide Excess & Surplus/Specialty

Tom Clark brings more than 33 years of technical and leadership experience in the insurance industry to Nationwide. He joined the E&S/Specialty team in September 2014 as a senior vice president and assumed the role of president in December 2015. Leading a $3 billion organization and more than 1,700 associates, Clark is focused on delivering profitable growth by strengthening distribution partnerships, effectively managing resources and creating a great environment for associates.

Prior to joining Nationwide E&S/Specialty, Clark served as senior vice president of field operations for Allied Insurance. Prior to that, he held the same role at Harleysville, in addition to serving as vice president of Harleysville’s New Jersey branch office. He has also been a commercial lines executive for the Mid-Atlantic region of Fireman’s Fund and held various other industry roles, including special risk manager for the Treiber Group (now part of RPS) and western area marketing manager for Clarendon National Insurance Company. He started his insurance career at Cigna Corporation, where he worked as a business development manager and underwriting services manager.

Deeply committed to corporate citizenship, Clark sits on the board of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance in Phoenix and is also the leader for Nationwide’s National Pride Associate Resource Group.

“The one thing I’ve learned throughout my years in the industry is that you need to work hard and/or be more deliberate in soliciting and optimizing the intellectual power of the people you work with,” Clark says. “My hope for the future of insurance is that we can continue to enhance the image of this industry to attract and retain the best talent.”
