Ina Clark Joins SPCA International as Executive Director

SPCA International welcomes Ina Clark as its new Executive Director. Ms. Clark comes to the role with extensive experience in strategic planning, development, capital campaigns, project management, branding, marketing, communications, and operations. Throughout a career spanning over two decades, she has been deeply involved in many aspects of nonprofit management and fundraising, with a strong history of cultivating meaningful relationships with organizational stakeholders.

Ina tells us, “The opportunity to continue building on the achievements of a successful nonprofit, keeping what is working, creating what is needed, and stewarding those who help make it happen – inside and outside the organization – is what wakes me up in the morning and supports my work ethic and passion. And to do this for animals? What could possibly be better or more important!”

Clark earned a bachelor’s degree from Rider University and has held leadership roles at major institutions such as the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, The Actors Fund, New York City Center, David Lynch Foundation, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Ms. Foundation for Women, and Sesame Workshop, among others. She has also served on boards including Manhattan’s Community Board 5 and Parsons Dance Company and led the marketing committee for NYC’s Cultural Institutions Group. 

We are delighted to welcome Ina Clark to her new role and look forward to seeing the positive impacts she will make within our organization and all of the animals we serve in our work.
