Casey Crouse Casey Crouse
Checkmate Trainer


Casey Crouse is one of our Checkmate Conversion Trainers. Her specialty is helping recyclers who are new to Checkmate. When recyclers first begin using Checkmate, Casey visits their business for a few days to help them convert their inventory data and to learn their new system. Casey hasn't always been in the software and auto recycling industries - before working at Car-Part, she was a chiropractor for 13 years. She was an associate chiropractor for 8 years, and then owned her own business for 5. As a chiropractor, Casey has always loved helping people and improving others' day-to-day lives. Training them to use their new Car-Part software fits right in with that passion!

When Casey isn't on the road helping recyclers, she spends time with her family and loves to dive into a good book!

boB Clark boB Clark
Fast Parts Sales


boB Clark started selling Fast Parts systems in February 1988. Before going to work for Jim Mangham, owner of Fast Parts, boB owned and managed several auto parts stores in Dallas, McAllen, and Corpus Christi. boB also worked for Bishop Core Supply in Dallas.

boB's background in small business gave him the ability to share his knowledge and use the knowledge he picked up from the recyclers to introduce them to the computer age. In the 80s and 90s, Bob would travel around the United States to show the recyclers why they needed a computerized inventory system.

We have come a long way since then and in recent years the industry has seen drastic change, but boB continues to educate recyclers about the steps that Car-Part has been taking to ensure that the independent auto recycler continues to dominate this industry.
