About Us - Leadership

Clif Baker – President

Clif is a President who leads by example. After serving six years in the US Coast Guard stationed out of Mobile, Alabama, he decided to convert his deep-seeded desire and knowledge of serving others with his skills into building a temporary staffing business in Corporate America. Today, his depth in understanding the nuances of the staffing industry stems from over 20 years of entrepreneurship throughout the central US, with offices in Mississippi, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas and Texas. Clif added Universal Labor & Staffing to his enterprise in 2005, quickly growing the business to expand into three offices.

Clif personifies “The Universal Way” far beyond the needs of the industry. He spends a great deal of his spare time and endless talents giving back to the communities in which he works. He champions several charities, most recently including the Chernobyl Children’s International Fund, which helps infants and children of the Chernobyl disaster.
