Teri Akpovi


Teri is the truest definition of a people person. She’s never met a stranger! With a degree in Journalism and a Master’s in Public Policy from Pepperdine, she’s built a robust career in recruiting and talent acquisition strategy. 

Before joining Will Reed, she was a Technical Recruiter at a startup called Rally Health. She then led in-house recruiting for a DC-based charter school, hiring all C-suite staff, educators and support staff. Most recently, she was the Senior Programs Recruiter for the Charles Koch Institute, where she again ran all  in-house recruiting and led professional development sessions and job search workshops. 

In her first few months at Will Reed, Teri built Will Reed’s Analyst Program, which seeks to train up the next generation of go-to-market Executive Recruiters. She is now an Associate, spending her days serving early-stage candidates and founders. 

After almost a decade in Washington, D.C., Teri now resides in Dallas, Texas.
