    Marco

    Marco was founded in 1973 by Gary Marsden and Dave Marquardt and began as a small typewriter shop in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The “Mar” in their last names were what inspired the name Marco to take shape. Within four decades, the small typewriter shop has evolved into one of the top five technology providers in the nation. Terry was instrumental in helping Marco develop the first professional sales-oriented business development group designed to increase Marco’s penetration into new areas, boost revenue and support pre- and post-acquisition initiatives. In addition to managing the business development team, Terry also books appointments for Marco prospects and customers in our mid major accounts as well as for our enterprise account team. Before joining Marco in 2012, Terry worked as a Sales Manager at Life Time Fitness for six years. He was promoted to Senior Sales Manager in 2011, overseeing five of their clubs. While at Life Time Fitness, Terry received several awards including: the Artistry Award for the Lakeville Club, Artistry Award for the TOP Club - Crosstown Life Time Fitness, and Artistry Award for Sales - Crosstown Life Time Fitness.
