San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2006
Dr. Ann Clark’s leadership in Employee Assistance Programs and specialty benefits resulted in the company she founded, ACI, being named one of the nation’s Top Ten EAPs by Business Insurance magazine for two years in a row. A psychologist turned entrepreneur, Dr. Clark broadened the business line to include a complete specialty benefits suite selling through broker partners and customer-direct across the nation and around the world.
Established in 1983, ACI grew to national prominence with such household names as Sizzler, Dietrich’s Coffee, Mercy Hospital, Mercury Insurance and San Diego’s own Luce, Forward Hamilton and Scripps as well as Charlotte Russe/Rampage Clothing. ACI was first named to the national Top Ten list in 2002 and again in 2005. This year ACI is proud to be listed as eight out of ten largest employee assistance program providers. Dr Clark attributes the firm’s success to hands-on service from a dedicated employee team, an outstanding national practitioner network and cost-favorable structure.
Dr. Clark’s expertise provided additional visibility for the company in the benefits industry, as well as in the media. Quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal in 2005, she has also authored four books, including “How to Survive Your Boss,” and numerous magazine articles. She has appeared on the national “Donahue” show as well as local television. She was selected as one of San Diego’s, “Outstanding Women Who Mean Business” and received the Bravo award from the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).
AppleCore Wellness and Affinity Work/Life are only two of the new products introduced by ACI over the years to accompany the basic EAP package. Adding SOX and Concierge programs helped define the company as a specialty benefits corporation. “We sell the solution,” says Dr. Clark. “As healthcare premiums have quadrupled and employees are asked to pay more, wellness and prevention of illness are critical components to corporate success. More and more the workplace finds intervention through education can impact that all-important bottom line.”
