Mainstreet Product Development Manager Celebrates 25-Year Anniversary
January 14, 2011

David Daniels, product development manager for Mainstreet Computers in Belleville, Mich., celebrates his 25th anniversary with the company this month-just three months before the company itself celebrates its 30th year in business in April.

Daniels began working part-time at Mainstreet in January 1986 while a senior in college at Eastern Michigan University (EMU). He was hired to do "source code documentation" and "maintenance programming." After graduating from EMU in June 1986 with a bachelor's degree in information systems, he began working full-time for the company.

Company officials say Daniels was instrumental in helping develop its first auto glass program on Unix-OS, and that he also helped design and develop the conversion of Glas-Ave® from Unix to Windows®.

"Words cannot express my appreciation for Dave's dedication and understanding of the value of technology in business. Working with him has been an unmitigated blessing. I can't believe it went by so fast!" says David Carnahan, Mainstreet president and founder. "His experience in working with glass companies in addition to outstanding problem solving skills has enabled us to continually adapt our software and service offerings to meet the changing needs of the industry."

Daniels adds, "Working at Mainstreet was my first job in my field of study. I remember thinking, 'This is going to look great on my resume.' Twenty-five years later and I have never finished that resume."

David and his wife, Donna, have been married for 21 years, have four school-aged children and reside in Westland, Mich. He enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and plays in a recreational hockey league.
