BTA member Marco has acquired Image Systems for Business Inc. of Somerset, New Jersey, which has been in business since 1987. Marco's sales and service team will serve and support clients from Image Systems' current location in Somerset.

Marco expanded its presence to the East Coast in November 2018 with its purchase of Phillips Office Solutions in Pennsylvania. The company currently has seven locations throughout Pennsylvania and two locations in Maryland.

"We are always looking for good opportunities to expand in our current markets," said Jeff Gau, CEO, Marco. "Marco's move into New Jersey allows our company to grow its eastern region and provide our well-established IT expertise and solutions to our new clients."

Marco has 59 locations throughout the United States with more than 1,400 employees and serves 36,000 clients around the country. It has acquired 11 companies in the past two years.

"We are pleased to have Marco serve our clients," said Art Schwartz, president, Image Systems for Business. "They have a wide variety of solutions coupled with outstanding customer service. Our customer base is in great hands."

In other news, Marco's leadership team is growing with four new promotions to help expand and enhance the company's offerings. The changes include a new chief technology officer and three new vice presidents in information technology and sales.

"These promotions are well deserved and are a catalyst for our undeniable growth as a company," Gau said. "This will ensure Marco is well positioned to execute on its goals of expanding within our current markets, and efficiently and effectively delivering our services to clients."

Clay Ostlund was named Marco's chief technology officer after 10 years with the company. In his new role, Ostlund will be responsible for selecting all technology solutions to ensure the company's offerings are current and innovative. He was also recently named to Prairie Business Magazine's 40 under 40 list.

Trevor Akervik was promoted to the vice president of IT managed services and is a 19-year veteran at Marco. He was instrumental in creating Marco's managed services — an offering that has grown to almost $70 million in revenue. In his new role, Akervik will be accountable for evaluating and expanding the company's managed services.

Steve John will take on the role of vice president of IT services, bringing 30 years of industry experience to the position. He will be responsible for service growth, profitability and customer satisfaction by improving processes and communications.

Finally, Matt Kanaskie was named vice president of IT sales operations responsible for sales execution. He developed Marco's cloud communications service offerings, and has a proven track record of taking on new challenges and executing them successfully.

These promotions follow other recent leadership changes within the company. This fall, James Bainbridge was promoted to vice president of finance and Doug Albregts was named president.
