Clark Stallings graduated from East Carolina University in 1989 with a major in Business Administration. His first job out of college was with an independent insurance agency and soon after he started his own agency in Washington, NC and later opened another agency in Greenville. Over the years, he continued to get involved with other endeavors and decided to sell his interests in the two agencies in 2005. He had always enjoyed the insurance agency business and definitely missed it. His passion and love for insurance remained and he always believed he would return to the agency business one day. That day has come with the opening of First State Insurance Advisors. Clark enjoys both the art and science of insurance. He believes serving others is a tremendous blessing and is committed to doing so with the utmost integrity.
