A native to the Kalamazoo and Portage areas, Darrell spent the first 5 years of his business-to-business sales career in the foodservice industry. With a solid track record in outside sales under his belt, Darrell then migrated to technology. For the next 27 years, Darrell marketed office equipment technology to much of Southwest Michigan, during which time he and Steven Heystek established a friendship and working relationship. Darrell sold the technology while Steven’s IT group supported the network printing, scanning, and faxing. Throughout his career, serving others has always been Darrell’s primary focus.
