Suzanne Clark founded Potomac Research Group in 2008 as part of David Bradley’s Atlantic Media Company, served as its only President while heading the National Journal, and acquired the company in early 2010. Previously, Clark served as President of the National Journal Group, Washington’s premier provider of information, news and analysis for the political and policy communities, publishing National Journal, CongressDaily, The Hotline, Global Security Newswire and The Almanac of American Politics.

Before joining NJG, Clark was Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of the US Chamber of Commerce, overseeing its day-to-day operations, and directing its Management Committee and its Communications and Federation Relations departments. Clark spent nine years at the Chamber, during which she also served as Managing Director of its public policy think tank, the National Chamber Foundation, and as President of the Business Civic Leadership Center, a governance and educational resource to the business community.

Recently described by Washingtonian magazine as one of the “100 Most Powerful Women in Washington,” Clark brings her energies to a number of civic activities, sitting on the board of So Others Might Eat (SOME) and on the public relations and marketing committee of Wolf Trap, the only national park dedicated to the performing arts. Clark also serves as the President of the Washington, DC Women’s Forum. Clark earned her BA, magna cum laude, in liberal studies, and her MBA from Georgetown University. She lives in Virginia, with her husband and their daughter.
