hen	I	spoke	to	Tim	Casey,	he	was	already	
a	few	weeks	into	his	August	retirement	
from	Garmin,	and	I	asked	him	what	he	
thought	of	all	the	fanfare	around	his	departure.	
"I'm	overwhelmed,"	Casey	said.	"I	told	my	wife	
I'm	a	pretty	egocentric	guy,	but	this	experience	has	
been	truly	humbling	and	very	rewarding."	
Of	particular	meaning	to	Casey	was	the	number	of	
Garmin	employees	who	approached	him	to	express	
thankfulness	for	their	careers	at	Garmin	or	for

"I	wouldn't	be	here	at	Garmin	if	it	weren't	for	you."
Casey	was	at	Garmin	for	23	of	the	company's	
25	years.	While	working	at	Northstar,	he	answered

-	Garmin	-	that	promised	"fun	and	growth."	He	
interviewed	with	co-founders	Gary	Burrell	and	Min	
Kao,	and	his	official	start	day	was	March	1,	1991,	as	
Garmin's	25th	employee.	According	to	Casey,	"For	
all	practical	purposes,	I	was	the	first	salesperson	
on	the	aviation	side."	He	laughed	and	added	that	
throughout	his	career,	he	would	say,	"I	was	promised	
fun,	so	don't	tell	me	I	can't	have	any."
While	working	at	Garmin,	he	said	he	made	sales	
on	six	of	the	seven	continents,	but	his	sightseeing
