Robot Whisperer

David Klynsma began his career with Liv Hospitality in August 2006 as a front desk clerk at Cadillac Jacks Gaming Resort. In a couple of short years, his passion for technology led him to become the IT Manager for Cadillac Jacks in 2008. By 2010, David led both the IT and Slot departments and increased slot revenues to record-breaking numbers for the time. In 2012, David moved to the corporate office to oversee all of Liv Hospitality’s technology assets and define a centralized IT department for the organization. By 2014, he was taking that responsibility a step further and branched out beyond Liv Hospitality, founding LinkTech IT Services serving Rapid City and the surrounding region. In 2017, David was named Chief Information Officer. Under his leadership, LinkTech has since grown to be one of the larger IT service providers in the area serving many Black Hills organizations.

Today, Mr. Klynsma holds a BS in Business Administration from Black Hills State University, numerous IT certifications, and a wealth of experience across a variety of technology disciplines and project implementations. In his current role, he is responsible for the technological direction of not only Liv Hospitality but also a number of other clients for whom he serves as VCIO under LinkTech. In his free time, Mr. Klynsma enjoys camping, fishing, and video games with his wife Hayley, and 2 sons.
