Akiak Holdings

Akiak Holdings, the tribal corporation for the Kuskokwim River village, created the new position of Chief Growth and Strategy Officer and appointed Patrick Crovo to the role. Working alongside CEO Kevin Hamer, Crovo facilitates collaboration with government to drive the company’s growth in digital enterprise services.

Crovo was most recently president of a professional services firm and IT firm which was successfully acquired by private equity in 2020. He was responsible for operations management, strategic planning, and company growth. He holds a bachelor’s degree in information systems from University of Maryland, Baltimore County and an MBA certificate in information technology from University of Maryland, University College (now University of Maryland Global Campus).

“Pat is a proven executive leader with extensive [government contracting] experience who will help to drive our growth strategy and deliver services and technology to help government tackle their biggest IT challenges,” says Hamer. “He brings deep industry expertise and has an incredible record of leading high-growth companies to greater success. His experience will benefit all our customers and stakeholders and we are elated he has joined our team.”

One of Akiak Holdings’ leading affiliates is Akiak Technology, a Virginia-based IT contractor led by Hamer’s wife, Sharon. Crovo says, “I have known Kevin and Sharon Hamer for a number of years and was attracted to their vision, culture, and principles-driven portfolio of companies that they were establishing.”
