Sam Funk recognized for innovation and sound business strategies.


“Many CFOs only look at the bottom line—the black and white—but Sam has a very unique ability to tie all of that to the people,” said Jessica Jones, VP of Talent Acquisition.

Today, at the second annual CXO of the Year Awards Luncheon, CLEARLINK’s Chief Financial Officer and President of Home Services, Sam Funk, was recognized as one of Utah’s most innovative business leaders. This is the first year that one of CLEARLINK’s leadership has been recognized for this prestigious award.

The event, sponsored by Utah Business Magazine, recognizes senior executives for outstanding performance in their individual roles. Those selected demonstrate strong financial leadership, visionary innovation and social responsibility to Utah businesses.

"Sam's experience and financial mind have been tremendous assets to CLEARLINK,” said John Anderson, Vice President of Finance. “His focus on driving operational efficiencies and collaboration efforts for our sales, marketing and administrative departments have made a significant difference in our overall profitability."

At today’s event, Funk was honored for expanding CLEARLINK’s bottom line into a double and triple bottom line. The double bottom line reflects the investment in CLEARLINK’s people and culture, through award-winning wellness programs, leadership development and employee career-pathing. The impact CLEARLINK has on the community is reflected in the triple bottom line, through efforts such as the marketing team’s ‘SEO 101’ sessions for 25+ non-profits and the entire company’s Walk4Water campaign, which raised $50,000 to build a clean water system in Rwanda.

“Sam understands the importance of the ‘people’ aspect of running a business,” said Jessica Jones, Vice President of Talent Acquisition. “Many CFOs only look at the bottom line—the black and white—but Sam has a very unique ability to tie all of that to the people.”
