A native of Texas and a 1965 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Craig established C.W. Clark, Inc., in 1974 as a full-service commercial real estate services firm. The company grew rapidly and eventually totaled 55 employees, including 34 real estate sales agents. In 1988, Craig sold the brokerage division to focus his efforts on commercial real estate development. Craig’s early success led him to expand beyond his base in San Diego County to pursue attractive projects in other areas of California, as well as in Arizona and Oregon.
An active participant in all aspects of the development process, Craig has formed more than 30 successful partnerships or limited liability companies over the years, serving as general partner or managing member, respectively. He has also been active in the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) in Southern California, serves on the advisory board of First Pacific Bank, and was a founding board member of the La Jolla Golden Triangle Rotary. His other outside interests include golf, bird hunting and fishing. Craig and his wife, Jan, are active members of the Village Presbyterian Church of Rancho Santa Fe.
