Meet the Team

Clark Headshot

Clark and Angela Penfold have been happily married for 18 years and reside in Glen Rose, Texas, with their three children, Hasten (9), Tricia (6), and Craig (1).

Clark began his adult life as a college baseball coach, becoming the Head Coach at Brookhaven College in Dallas, TX at twenty-four years old, while Angela spent her days as a teacher at Highland Park Presbyterian Day School.

With a desire to learn business, Clark moved into franchise operations and manufacturing for D-BAT Sports in Addison, where he worked for 5 years.

Soon after Hasten was born in 2014, Clark and Angela took their first step into entrepreneurship, purchasing a CertaPro Painters territory. They won numerous awards within the CertaPro system in categories focused on Customer Satisfaction, which led to over 350% growth in a seven year period. This growth happened despite the Covid-19 pandemic, a move from Farmers Branch to Glen Rose, and the additions of Tricia and Craig to the family.

They credit their success in business to the Core Values that they put in place, and their constant focus on “Enhancing the Lives of the People Around Us.”

In December of 2022, Clark and Angela sold their CertaPro territory, and were on the lookout for their next opportunity to build a business that would utilize their Core Values of Business:

1. Every Day Has a Purpose
2. Integrity is Non-Negotiable
3. Our People are Our Priority
4. We’re in the Business of Exceeding Expectations

The Penfolds are excited to join the Up Closets family and will continue to focus on providing the best work place available for their people, with the goal of providing an extraordinary experience for their clients.
