Davey Worthen

As Production Manager, Davey runs the morning production meeting, shepherds orders through the process, and keeps the staff on their toes. There’s a reason Reno Type gets jobs done before our competitors can even complete an estimate. Davey runs the system that makes that work.

Davey joined the Reno Type Team nearly 20 years ago. At the tender age of 19 he became our delivery driver. After a few years of schlepping type and linotronic output all over town, we gave him a “break” and made him a proofer. Then in 1996 Reno Type installed the first digital press in Reno: the Agfa Chromapress. Ours was serial number 32. No kidding! Davey spent a couple of weeks in New Jersey learning to operate this newfangled beast and so was finally allowed to use a chair.

Fast forward to this century and you’ll find Davey on the phone with vendors and clients and managing the production schedule at Reno Type.

Somewhere between his family and work life, he finds time to grow vegetables. Thousands of them. No matter the time of year, there’s a bag, box or bowl of fresh goodness here at the office, courtesy of Davey.

What makes Davey the Reno Type?

“I’m a native Nevadan, and many members of my family have been or still are teachers in Washoe County. Seems like every other customer remembers taking life science from my dad at Reno High School. Or being coached by my brother at the same place. But I think for me it comes down to my family: Both the one at home and the one at the office. It’s hard to imagine a better place to raise a family.”
