Trevor Akervik

Chief Operating Officer

An ordinary moment in a college parking lot over 20 years ago turned into an extraordinary opportunity for Trevor Akervik. It led him to join Marco as a copier sales professional.

Now, as Chief Operating Officer, he continues to use his skills to work in strategizing and building. He is responsible for driving results for Marco, as it evolves into a national, integrated business technology provider. In addition, he continues to oversee Human Resources and business strategies that promote growth and opportunities for the company's talent. He leads efforts to create new strategies, as well as modifies existing strategies to support market dynamics and achieve Marco’s business plan.

He most recently served as Marco's Chief Strategy Officer and held roles of increasing responsibility since he joined Marco as a territory sales representative in 2001. His clear commitment to helping customers and exceeding goals earned him the role of sales manager, and he was chosen to help establish and oversee Marco’s managed service practice in 2009. Through the years, he has been a key player in Marco building its IT business.

If his life were a book, it would be titled, “Constantly Learning, Always Evolving,” with the final line being, “Everything’s a lesson that leads you to the next challenge. If you pay attention to the lessons you’re learning, you will be better prepared for the next challenge.”

In his free time, you’ll likely find him doing something active – walking, running, Peloton-ing or playing pickleball. He is also an aspiring car enthusiast. He does slow down – occasionally – and enjoys spending time with friends and family, including his wife and their two daughters.
