Katherine Clark, MBA ’95, and chief executive officer of Landmark Systems Corporation, which she co-founded in 1983, has been appointed to the university’s Board of Visitors. She replaces Terry Klaassen, BS ’77, who recently resigned.
Clark helped found Landmark Systems, which began as a software company that provided packaged software solutions to manage large-scale computer systems. During its early years, Landmark experienced rapid growth with strong sales of its products in both domestic and international markets. Clark oversaw the expansion of Landmark’s own product line by introducing several successful new products. During that period she had hands-on management responsibility for all aspects of the company’s operations including product development, domestic and international sales, customer service, marketing, and finance.
Clark was recognized as George Mason Alumnus of the Year in 1996. In addition to her honor from Mason, she received the KPMG Peat Marwick High Tech Entrepreneur Award, the Earle C. Williams Leadership in Technology Award from the Northern Virginia Technology Council, and the Ernst & Young Software Entrepreneur of the Year Award. She is a former trustee of the George Mason University Foundation.
