Our Mission & Mark

The mission of Clarke & Esposito is to help our clients navigate the currents and winds of the professional and scholarly information marketplace. We chose an albatross for our mark as ships lost at sea have long been known to follow this winged traveler to land and safety. The albatross is regarded by mariners as a symbol of good fortune and a guide in uncertain waters—and the waters many organizations find themselves sailing through today are nothing if not uncertain.

What We Believe

An independent point of view is essential. Organizations hire Clarke & Esposito for our independent perspective. We come by our viewpoint honestly and we present it with integrity. This is a core value of the firm—we do not simply tell clients what we think they wish to hear. Although we bring experience and external context to each engagement, we do not bring a preconceived solution. Our recommendations are based on the unique situation of each client and are informed by research and findings gathered as part of each client engagement.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Clarke & Esposito operates on a “one firm” model. All work is internally peer reviewed and represents the collective experience and considered advice of our team.

Advice should be practical. Our focus is on delivering recommendations that are practical, implementable, and aligned with the business needs of our clients.

One size does not fit all. This is true of enterprise strategies, business models, user needs, pricing strategies, and nearly every other facet of today’s information marketplace. It is also true of the solutions we develop at Clarke & Esposito, each of which is a response to the unique set of circumstances, needs, and objectives brought by our clients.

The work matters. Professional and scholarly information has the power to transform individuals, organizations, and society, on a global scale. This is the domain where the heavy lifting takes place, where the intellectual, scientific, and technological scaffolding is built that supports individual decisions, organizational strategies, and national and international policy.
