VA Council of CEOs Presents McCabe Award to Bob Clark

Richmond, Virginia: The Virginia Council of CEOs (VACEOs), a non-profit association serving more than 200 small and mid-sized business owners, presented the Charles E. McCabe Leadership Award on May 2, 2024 at the Annual VACEOs Spring Retreat held at The Greenbrier Resort.

The McCabe Leadership Award, presented by the Virginia Council of CEOs Board of Directors, recognizes VACEOs members who make significant, long-term leadership contributions to the Council. Chuck McCabe, Founding Chairman of the Council, was appropriately named as the first recipient of the award in 2017.

Bob Clark became President of Baskerville in 2004. He joined VACEOs in 2005. He has participated in both a roundtable and a forum, serving as leader of these peer groups several times. Bob joined the VACEOs board in 2016. He served as Treasurer in 2017 and 2018. He became Vice Chair in 2019 and Chairman in the tumultuous year of 2020.

Executive Director Scot McRoberts said, “Bob was the perfect pandemic leader. When the world locked down and our in-person organization had to become virtual almost overnight, Bob helped our board make fast decisions, take risks, and ultimately serve our members brilliantly.”

In his past-chair year of 2021, Bob resumed the Treasurer role for half the year due to a resignation. Bob has always said yes to everything we’ve asked him to do, served gladly, and led with resolve. 

Tom Cricchi, 2023 McCabe award recipient and close friend of Bob, described Bob as “a man of principle[,] very committed to the idea of openness, transparency, vulnerability, and sharing. He truly is an MVP in our group,” while reading the award citation.
