Founder and Company History



After a successful tenure as a college professor, Dr. Ann Clark decided to act on her entrepreneurial drive and pursue a new career that combined her psychological expertise with her desire to help others on a broad scale. In the summer of 1983, Dr. Clark founded ACI Specialty Benefits with a passion for helping people and businesses thrive. As CEO, Dr. Clark has overseen 35 years of continued growth as the company has evolved, expanded and adapted its services to meet the dynamic needs of today’s workforce.

ACI was first featured on the Top Ten EAP list in 2002, and has remained there ever since with a demonstrated commitment to innovation, industry leadership, and the highest level of service. In 2009, ACI pioneered a widely successful and groundbreaking approach to student assistance with SOAR: Student Outreach, Assistance, Resources, and acquired two major corporations, Leverage Life and Life Care Services EAP. In 2011, ACI unveiled myACIonline, a first-of-its-kind platform for EAP, work-life and corporate concierge services.

ACI and its employees are also passionate about giving back to the community through service and charitable donations. As part of this focus on helping others, Dr. Clark founded the first ever International Chair Yoga Association in 2016 with a mission to make chair yoga accessible for all.

ACI’s reputation for service and integrity contributes to its long-time success and client satisfaction. ACI’s diverse clientele ranges from small regional businesses to international corporations, including Fortune 500 companies, governments and municipalities, educational institutions, hospitals, and transportation and retail industry giants. ACI remains a privately-owned specialty benefits corporation headquartered in San Diego.
