Serving more than 25 years as CEO, Stacy Carter has guided Carter & Clark to become the nation’s largest builder services and surveying firm, leading the industry by incorporating proprietary technology to meet the growing demands of C+C clients. Responsible for the overall vision and direction of the company, Stacy’s energetic leadership — combined with a sharp business acumen and entrepreneurial drive — has helped skyrocket C+C’s growth and has earned her the trust of blue-chip clients like DR Horton and AECOM. In addition to extensive expertise in surveying, planning, engineering, and construction management, it’s Stacy’s willingness to inspire and mentor others that’s compelling. With the goal to create a reliable, respectful, and quality workplace, Stacy has successfully recruited the most talented and innovative people in the industry to join her team.
Stacy obtained her civil engineering education from Georgia Tech, her land surveying training from Middle Georgia College, and a mathematics and statistics degree from Mercer University.

Since 2013, Gavin Bacchus has continually kept Carter and Clark on the cutting edge of technology and innovation. As vice president of research and development, Gavin’s ability to identify problems and offer solutions has led to substantial operational improvements throughout the company. C+C’s own “MacGyver,” his technological expertise and troubleshooting talents have made it possible for the company to now process more than 5,000 client orders per month. As developer of C+C’s proprietary and client-facing operational software, CCConnect, Gavin has given C+C an undeniable advantage that has garnered attention throughout the industry.

Client satisfaction is the foundation of Carter + Clark’s success and, as Vice President of Account Management, Michelle Leahy Bacchus makes sure it stays that way. Responsible for customer support and organic growth since 2013, Michelle and her department have continued to provide top-tier customer service, even as the company quadrupled in size. With Net Promoter Scores (NPS) consistently in the high 90’s — unprecedented in our industry — Michelle adheres to a management style that includes establishing scalable procedures, recruiting and training the most talented team members, and adhering to high standards for support and service. It’s this ambitious mix of aggressive sales, superior support, and decisive management, that has made Michelle a critical factor in C+C’s surge of success.
