Co-op CEO Jeff Clark was recently recognized at the Jacksonville-Onslow Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Membership Celebration as the 2018 Golden Eagle Man of the Year.

Mr. Clark received the award for demonstrating excellence in his profession, serving the chamber and other organizations he is involved in with integrity, and showing commitment to the betterment of the community.

“This is a great community. It is a hid-den gem, and I’m humbled, and I’m honored to receive this award,” Clark said. “It has been an honor to work alongside the people of this community to make it a better place to live.”

When presenting the award to Mr. Clark, last year’s recipient, Marine Federal Credit Union CEO Jeff Clark, noted “this year’s honoree is one of those people who has a story that inspires others. He started at the bottom of his chosen profession with an entry-level, third shift job; 40 years later he has risen to the top of his profession because
of his knowledge, talent, passion, and belief in teamwork.”
