Although Casey worked summers in the warehouse and IT department prior to 1999, after graduating with BA in Computer Science from Transylvania University in Lexington, KY, he became the first 4th generation family member to work full-time at Clark Restaurant Service.

Since he works with computers all day at work, old cars, motorcycles, 3D printing, and wood-working occupy most of Casey’s free time.
