Nic Clark’s lifelong dream has been to work in Major League Baseball. After graduating from Curry College this past May, he's turned that dream into a flourishing career.
Clark, a 2022 graduate, was recently hired by the Chicago White Sox as a Group Sales Account Executive. Clark is the youngest sales executive within the Major League Baseball organization, which is a testament to his hard work, dedication, and ambition.
With a strong desire to work in the sports industry, Clark became one of Curry’s first Sport and Recreation Management majors, a program now housed in the College’s School of Business and Computer Science offering the unique management, marketing, and strategy curriculum to succeed in the businesses of sport and recreation.
“Professor Michelle Brimecombe started something special with the Sport and Recreation Management program, and Professor Natalie West has done a phenomenal job continuing its growth,” said Clark. “It was a pleasure to be instructed by the two of them.” With the support of his dedicated and experienced faculty and their connection to the sports industry, Clark secured two undergraduate internships that ultimately led him to his dream job.
During his junior year, Clark served as a marketing and game day operations intern for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, where he learned valuable skills in digital content management. A year later, he began a sales internship with the Massachusetts Pirates, a professional Indoor Football League team based in Worcester, where he learned all the fundamentals of sales. These two real-world experiences, in combination with a robust academic curriculum and various extracurricular activities, shaped Clark’s personal and professional path.
“Being on a smaller campus, you have the chance to get involved with so many great clubs and organizations,” said Clark, who served as the Class of 2022 President, an orientation leader, peer mentor, and student-athlete on the football team. “Your professors know you by name, your advisors invest their time getting to know you, and that pushes you to strive further, try harder, and be better.”
