Per Casey, President & CEO, Application Architect
On any given day, Per divides his time between project and client consultation, conferencing with Tenrec’s leaders (i.e., listening to their great ideas), and managing the company’s long-term strategy and growth.
Per has logged in over 20 years in the technology industry. Prior to founding Tenrec in 1997, Per worked as a technology teacher/director at a K-8 school in San Francisco, CA, and as the marketing and IT manager for a publishing house in Berkeley, CA.
Per lives with his wife, two kids, and dog in Portland, OR. When not at work he hopes you’ll find him camping, fishing, or travelling the world, but most likely he’s just in his backyard mowing the lawn or in the kitchen unloading the dishwasher (again).
Mike Ingala, Director of Technical Services

Mike’s experience as a team-lead and senior web developer makes him a key technical resource and top-notch web developer for the Tenrec team. His art degree is an added resource, giving Mike the ability to see the “big picture” on the technical and design aspects of a project.
At home Mike is a family man. He loves being a dad, and regularly volunteers at his kids’ school. He also enjoys brewing beer, attending beer festivals, and camping.
