Born in Kansas City, he graduated in 2004 from the University of Central Missouri, then joined the family business as part of a fourth generation of managers. His key accomplishments – achieved in concert with his brother Matthew Kartsonis – included his company’s acquisitions of Medical Laundry Service and Mr. Mat. David also was an Eagle Scout and a Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say.
