KC TECHNOLOGIES is owned and operated by Kirk S. Caskey and his wife Nancy. Kirk has been a resident of the area since 1964 when his family moved here so that his father could teach chemistry at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Kirk attended public school in Carbondale and then SIU. After working in the public sector for the next several years, Kirk attended John A Logan College in Carterville. He graduated from there in the spring of 1993. During that time in college, and afterward, Kirk worked as a draftsman/designer in the manufacturing industry in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. In the fall of 1993, Kirk accepted a draftsman/designer position with an architectural firm in Carbondale. While working for the firm, Kirk installed their first network, expanded computer integration into all areas of production, and installed and serviced all of the firm's computer workstations, laptops and servers. KC TECHNOLOGIES began as a part-time computer repair business in 1997 while Kirk was working full-time for the architectural firm. In the fall of 2004, after over eleven years in architecture, Kirk left that industry to pursue his passion for technology full-time. Since that time, Kirk has seen KC TECHNOLOGIES grow into a thriving business that helps clients solve their technology issues, assists them with their technology decisions and provides them with insights into the future of the technology industry.
