We are now open in Portland and cannot wait to introduce our team! We wanted our customers to recognize familiar faces when they walk in for the first time, so we have put together a short profile on our amazing crew members. Without further ado, meet Mike Davenport, Paige Casey, and Mike Meyer, our Portland rockstars!

 

 

Mike Davenport, Portland Branch Manager

 

 

Where are you from?

Arvada, Colorado

 

What do you like to do outside of The Part Works?

My wife and I enjoy wine tastings, Wii Sports, and Guitar Hero. I also play the guitar.

 

What is your favorite movie?

Dune. I've been a huge fan of Dune since I read Frank Herbert's novel as a kid and am I waiting in suspense for the sequel to come out.

 

 

If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?

We would move to a cabin in the woods because we enjoy splitting firewood and having late nights by the fire.

 

What is your favorite thing about Portland?

I love the extended Fall season of Portland and the Pacific Northwest.

 

From your perspective, what is the best thing about The Part Works?

Our team, we've got each other's backs, which makes The Part Works a great place to want to be and contribute.

 

 

Paige Casey, Inside Technical Consultant

 

 

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in New Mexico, then moved to Lewiston, Idaho in junior high, where I lived until I moved to Portland in 2008. I am a proud PNW gal but definitely fond of my southwestern roots. I love the desert sun, and give me all the Hatch green chili!

 

What do you like to do outside of The Part Works?

I love to explore the beauty of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Whether that be the coast, high mountain desert, Mt. Hood, or the hot springs of Idaho. In the summertime, you can find me at the river! I love camping and pursuing my cooking passion by creating delicious delights in the kitchen. I enjoy disc golf and roller skating as well, not simultaneously, of course, that sounds dangerous! The city is a great place to enjoy, but I find myself most happy when I am out exploring the lands.

 

What is your favorite movie?

That is a tough one, but I would say it is a solid toss-up between Forest Gump->5th Element->The Abyss->Rango. I find it hard to choose just one, it depends on the day, but these are some of my go-to’s.

 

If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?

Everywhere, but if I had to choose one place right now, I would say Croatia to swim in the Adriatic Sea. I wouldn’t want to stop there, though. I love traveling and hope to continue to explore the world throughout my life.

I have had the opportunity to explore some amazing places and look forward to seeing more of the world. Anywhere tropical sounds great to me!

 

What’s your favorite thing about Portland?

I love the proximity to endless adventure and the excellent farmers markets hosted throughout the city. There are many elements to value about Portland, making it hard to choose just one.

- GO BLAZERS!

 

From your perspective, what is the best thing about The Part Works?

The customer care and the family-like atmosphere. Genuine folks that enjoy what we do. It’s a family-owned company with solid merit and integrity. I am proud to be a part of the family!

 

 

Mike Meyer, Technical Sales Consultant

 

 

Where are you from?

I was born in Iowa, grew up in Nebraska, and then spent 25ish years in Wisconsin (because of the cheese!) I have been living in Oregon now for four years, and I love it. I always wanted to live in the Pacific Northwest.

 

What do you like to do outside of The Part Works?

I enjoy going on day hikes with the family and having a picnic at the local waterfalls. I have six kids, so we like any activity that gets us out of the house.

 

What is your favorite movie?

Jeremiah Johnson (Robert Redford… from the ‘70s) If you have not seen it, he goes from basically the civil war into the mountains to live alone but doesn’t know what he is doing. 

 

If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?

Alaska - I like cold weather. I have never been there, but it sounds nice.

 

What is your favorite thing about Portland?

The Columbia, the Willamette, the Ocean, we like water.

 

From your perspective, what is the best thing about The Part Works?

Personal service with a professional touch. Who else comes to your facility in person? We come to you!
