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.

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.

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.

Lee Janes

President of Clark Computer Services

Opportunities strike when you least expect it. While working for a labor union in Washington, D.C., my life was changed forever when the big boss of my department suggested that I go back to school to become an IT Technician. At the time, they preferred promoting from within and had people scheduled to be retiring. In addition, I was told if I did well in school, my tuition would be covered. Growing up I had to earn everything I wanted, learning the value of hard work, so I grabbed that brass ring and never looked back. Much later, while managing a group of technicians I met Darren Clark, and opportunity struck again. In him I saw someone dedicated to building a top-notch organization with a reputation for excellence in every area. When he explained that he saw those same qualities in me and offered me a position, I stepped up and took it.

Moving from the the role of Vice President of Sales to taking over as President of Clark Computer Services, I’ll be able to bring the experience I’ve gained to lead our great organization as we continue to grow and expand.

We always treat your IT systems as if they are our own and show that we can be counted on to deliver honest, friendly, prompt, and professional support.

Chuck Sperati

Director of Cybersecurity & Marketing

Between government contracts, Chuck came to CLARK in September of 2019, looking for a temporary technician position. After a long conversation with Darren, discussing company values, culture, and a desire for growth, something more permanent happened. Bringing three decades of experience in Information Technology, working as a technician, trainer, technical writer, and manager, gaining a great deal of experience with cybersecurity and compliance, Chuck accepted a position as Director of Cybersecurity. But in a small business, one has to wear many hats. With years of experience in website design, graphic design, and marketing as an independent author, he also took the role of Director of Marketing, building a series of new services for us to offer.

A fun fact about Chuck: Growing up in Northeast Ohio, his Grandfather taught him how to fix things and to never be afraid to jump in and get his hands dirty. To this day, when something needs doing, he channels his inner Harry Hulewat (Grandpa), rolls up his sleeves, and gets it done. We know that wherever Harry is, he’s proud.
