Dave Kerns
IT Director

How long have you worked at Comfort Supply?

Since December, 2017.

How did you get into this position?

I got tired of being a cook, I had been doing it for years and wanted a change. Though I already had a pretty good idea of what I was doing IT-wise, I knew that needed that I needed to get a degree. My dad went to college for IT when he was in his 20’s;  so I went back to school in 2008 to get that important piece of paper, and here I am.

What is your favorite part about working at CSI?

The people. I’m used to working in a corporate environment where there are thousands of people who have no idea who I am, and really don’t care whether I show up or not. Plus Brendan lets me buy all the IT toys that I want — within reason!

What drives you professionally?

Money and job security. I like to learn as much as I can. That’s one of the reasons I like IT, there is always something new to find out. I really enjoy solving complex and difficult problems, so this is a good fit.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I used to be a professional chef for 15 years. My favorite thing to make is curries.
