President & COO
Amidst the constant flurry of new technology products and solutions it’s easy for IT service providers to lose track of the fundamentals of providing great service. As the President of WorkSmart, Clay spends his days talking to customers, coworkers, and partners to ensure WorkSmart’s service and support is world-class.
A native North Carolinian, Clay attended high school in Greensboro and college at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. And as the son of two educators, Clay brings an emphasis on constant learning to WorkSmart culture. Tar Heel hospitality and the drive to help others are at the core of the company’s values: Do the Right Thing, Personal Connections, and Hunger for Growth. Clay has been a driving force at WorkSmart since its inception, helping found the company while still attending UNC. He attributes the company’s success to the team —“Our team is smart and hard-working, and they really care passionately about our customers. That makes work fun and rewarding, even on the days that aren’t easy.”
Outside of WorkSmart Clay surrounds himself with a similarly awesome team: his wife Jackie, two daughters—Zoe and Nora—and two small pups—Coco and Otis. The whole family enjoys digging in the garden, yelling at the squirrels on the bird feeders, and any opportunity to travel together. And if you’re a UNC fan, you’re sure to see the Harris family cheering on the Heels at games.
