DULUTH, GEORGIA, U.S. — AGCO, manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, appointed Suzanne Clark, senior executive vice-president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, to its board of directors, effective immediately. Clark will serve on the Compensation and Succession Planning Committees.

“We are delighted to have Suzanne join our board of directors,” said Martin Richenhagen, chairman, president and chief executive officer of AGCO. “She brings extensive leadership experience, entrepreneurial spirit, and a wealth of political and regulatory knowledge, which will provide an important perspective and contribution to our board.”

Prior to re-joining the U.S. Chamber in 2014, where she had previously served as chief operating officer (COO), Clark acquired and led a prominent financial information boutique – Potomac Research Group (PRG) -- which was recognized by the Inc500 as the 135th fastest growing private company in 2013. Before taking the helm at PRG, she joined the Atlantic Media Co. as president of the National Journal Group, a provider of information, news and analysis for Washington, D.C.’s policy and political communities.

She is a member of the board of So Others Might Eat, a Washington, D.C., support system for the homeless. She is the former president of International Women’s Forum (Washington Chapter), a global group of leading women in business, law, government, technology and the arts. Clark was named one of Washingtonian Magazine’s “100 Most Powerful Women in Washington.” Clark received a bachelor of arts, magna cum laude, and an MBA from Georgetown University.
