Editor’s note: Bill Clark, owner of Bill Clark Pest Control, was inducted into the Southeast Texas BBB Hall of Fame and was awarded the “Friend of the Bureau” award at its latest Torch Awards ceremony. John Paschall, president / CEO, Better Business Bureau in Southeast Texas, provided the following write up on Clark.
Bill Clark, owner of Bill Clark Pest Control, was one of the founding members and a Charter Accredited Business of the Better Business Bureau of Southeast Texas in 1963. Throughout those early years and throughout the first three decades, there were numerous times that the future of the BBB was tenuous at best. Bill Clark consistently stood in the gap for the organization and fought for its existence even when other Board Directors were calling for its dissolution. At one point, Bill even forwarded the phones of the BBB to his office, so that the BBB's phones could continue to be answered and the BBB could remain viable. The fact that the BBB of Southeast Texas now ranks #2 in the entire BBB System (112 BBB's across North America) is due in large part to the constant, continual, and sometimes single-handed support of Bill Clark over the past 50 years.
Additionally the BBB of Southeast Texas recently inducted Bill Clark into their BBB hall of fame and awarded him the “Friend of the Bureau” award at their latest Torch Awards ceremony.
Bill Clark further personifies the BBB Mission in the way he leads his 60 plus team of Bugsperts with assurance that Southeast Texans are well aware that Bill Clark Pest Control, Inc. will do the job with excellence and at a fair price. That is the reputation that his company has built through the 57 year history of Bill Clark's ownership and leadership.
