MEET THE CLARK TEAM

Back in 2003, Darren Clark started Clark Computer Services (CLARK) out of the trunk of his car. Over the next two decades he partnered with local and area small businesses to build a thriving IT Support business with an ever expanding range of services and locations. That kind of growth required hiring good people who share Darren’s drive to provide a great customer experience while responding to problems quickly and resolving them first time. On this page, you can learn more about Darren and those he trusts to maintain CLARK’s 5-Star reputation

CLARK continues to grow. We started as Clark Computer Services and expanded with our business infrastructure division, Clark Business Technologies, and web development and management team, Clark Website Services. With all of that happening, we’ve made it easy for everyone to find Our Team members by organizing everyone by department.

We recently hired Clark ...to install data cabling for a brand new 15,000sf office and it is the neatest/cleanest low voltage install we've ever seen. Their crew did a fantastic job and were extremely professional throughout the entire experience. We’ll definitely be calling them for any future IT needs.

I've been working with a few folks from Clark for almost 15 years for all my cabling needs. I've never used anyone else as the service they provide is excellent. I highly recommend them!

Darren Clark

President and Owner

I left big business to start Clark Computer Services in 2003; not because I had a grand vision, but because I had three young children who needed their Dad around. Knowing I had to replace my salary, I went door-to-door visiting small businesses to introduce myself and ask if they needed IT support. I heard story after story from business owners and office managers about IT companies not returning calls and emails, grumpy technicians showing up late or not at all, and systems being down for days, weeks, and in some cases…months. I realized quickly that there was a clear and pressing need for reliable, honest, and professional IT support completed pleasantly and on time.

This experience created the foundation for Clark Computer Services and helped me articulate the vision that has guided the company for more than 19 years:

We will make customer service our highest priority and ensure that all customers receive friendly, reliable, and professional service on every job, at every sales call, and on everything we do.

Ken Smoyer

President of Clark Building Technologies

Since acquisition of A-1 Telecommunications, LLC, when we welcomed the former owner to the CLARK team, Ken Smoyer has been promoted to the position of President of Clark Building Technologies. Ken and his business partner Bill started A-1 Telecommunications, LLC under a different name in 1997. Having successfully run his own business for 25 years, Ken is excited to take on the challenges of guiding Clark Building Technologies.

Before owning A-1, Ken started his career as an IBM mainframe tech and slowly built his knowledge to include data communications networking, PBX phone systems, and telecommunications cabling. Having the opportunity to discover customer needs and working to exceed their expectations while providing superior customer service is Ken’s favorite part of working in this industry.

Fun facts about Ken: Between him and his wife, Dawn, Ken has four adult children, one dog, and a couple of cats. In his free time, Ken enjoys driving around in his 1969 Chevelle Convertible and 1939 Ford pickup truck. As you might have guessed, restoring old vehicles is his pastime, though he also loves music and playing his acoustic guitar.
