Fresh out of high school, Ernie Clark, Jr. took over the leadership role at Mister Kleen. He had ten years of on-the-job training under his belt and made the difficult choice to stay and run the business instead of going off to college. Ernie knew the importance of education though; he took business classes at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) and attended workshops and conventions sponsored by Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI). He didn’t shy away from hard work and built a strong foundation for the company that would lead to future success. It took some time to establish himself, but he soon became a respected leader in the industry. Ernie was determined to continue the dream of his parents.
