Guy Clark is multitalented: After graduating from Syracuse University, where he majored in quantitative analysis and business marketing, he worked in high jewelry at Cartier for 12 years; he’s run his own interior design firm for 20 years, and three years ago, he also decided to get his real estate license. “Basically, I now have three jobs,” he jokes. While Clark grew up in Upper Nyack, New York, and attended prep school at Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts, his family has wintered in Vero Beach for generations. Clark owned a home there until 2006 and bought his first Palm Beach condo in 2005. Today, he resides midtown with his husband, designer Harrison Morgan, and has a home in New York. Locally, Clark supports 211 Helpline, Compass, and the Palm Beach Symphony and serves as a director of The Citizens’ Association of Palm Beach.
