Abby Bodlovich


Abby landed her first role in college recruiting where she quickly became adept at building relationships and educating students and families. But after four years in the college recruiting world, Abby wanted something faster-paced that offered a traditional sales focus. She moved to agency recruiting where she then focused on business development and account management, excelling at building strong relationships with accounts and quickly rising to the top of the pack. Five years later, she found herself wondering, “What’s next?” The universe must have been listening because at the same time, she ended up grabbing coffee with Amy to catch up, and through that conversation, she found her next challenge.  

Abby now has joined our Sales Enablement team serving our clients with the largest pipeline goals and tackling the Client Manager responsibilities for our more tenured operational clients. Taking her sales career to the next level, Abby is in more active sales conversations than ever before and seeing the multiplier effect our program has on sales teams’ pipelines. Clients enjoy her training in objection handling in our top-funnel prospecting and Abby closes her computer every day feeling her massive contribution—which is exactly what she was looking for when she came to AK Ops.

Abby lives in St. Louis with her husband and three kids. She enjoys spending time outside, creating fun projects with her kids, and socializing with family and friends.

From Amy:

Abby’s sales background and hustle speak for themselves. After a casual, unexpected coffee date with Abby, I just knew she had what it takes to join my team and deliver our work. She wasn't looking for a move, but luckily I convinced her to come in and shadow us for a day so she could see our team and work in real life. I know the energy we cultivate is the exact fit Abby needed. The move to AK Ops leverages her closing skills, pipeline work, and sales relationships—but she takes them to the next level by representing our clients. Fast forward to the present and she’s rounded the learning curve and well on her way here at AK Ops! The sky's the limit when someone is as committed as Abby and I am so thankful she’s here!

I've never had a resource like this in sales. It's changed my ability to close and be more effective with my pipeline. You guys taking completely cold leads and sourcing Enterprise deals has been huge for us.

Since partnering with AK Operations, we have a 166% increase in new sales meetings booked thanks to their demand gen and lead gen campaigns. This program has not only helped our momentum at the top of the funnel but also strengthened our sales process and enabled our reps. Not to mention the collaboration with Anna and Sara has been incredibly beneficial.

This is my second time working with AK Operations - first as an onboarding partner for a completely new installation of HubSpot (moving from Pardot) and this time to help us clean up, reorganize, and re-energize an existing installation and email marketing program. Each time I am grateful for their insight into how to tie together Marketing and Sales efforts, handoffs, and recycling. Each time I have seen a measurable increase in return on our email marketing efforts—both in increased engagement and increased value of the contacts responding. AK Operations' staff (shout out Krista and Shelby especially!) and program are a fantastic way to jump start or revive an email marketing program and their feedback also helps inform content strategy and sales journey experience.

Director of Marketing Communications


Amy Kohl and AK Ops have completely blown us away. After kicking off mid-June, they hit their 45-day goal in 20 days by booking us 20 meetings. The speed at which they make things happen is shocking—they have violence of action! Every time we’re looking at a new goal or objective, we’re used to a report taking a week or two to build. With the AK Ops team, it’s either the same or next day. Every expectation has been met or exceeded. Our two closers now feel like they have the horsepower of a fully-staffed, well-tuned sales org behind them. We’re incredibly happy and plan to work with AK Ops for as long as possible.

Cole Morgan,
CEO & Founder of StageConnect


As a small startup, we were challenged to develop new qualified leads and a robust pipeline quickly. Instead of hiring an army of SDRs, training them, and managing them going forward, we chose a modern sales approach with AK Ops. AK Ops are experts in digital marketing and lead development techniques. They developed a dynamic process to drive quality outbound communication and lead generation. They complemented this approach with weekly analytics to manage our progress. This allowed us to focus on the most important work of turning these leads into customers.

Sam Rapp,
VP of Partnerships at Crowdsmart


I believe the most important factor that can make or break a startup is having the right people in place on your team as you work to execute your strategy. More than anything else, this is why we have been thrilled with AK Operations – and not just AK herself… this especially includes Mallory first, and now Christy and Sara!

In 90 days, Amy and team have been instrumental in most of the areas I would consider critical to our go-to-market success, including:

  • Contributing greatly with ongoing thought leadership and solid, foundational planning
  • Assisting us in identifying the right data points and patterns as we look to measure results.
  • Providing us with the ability (and agility) to iterate quickly as we continue to look for ways to accelerate our progress.
  • They balance a wealth of experience and know-how with creativity and collaboration.   
  • They are aligned with our goals with a passionate commitment towards achieving results.

If you are a revenue leader and your priority this year is to build a successful, scalable, and predictable revenue machine in the ever-chaotic world of startup sales, AK Operations should be your first call!

Cortney Smith,
VP of Sales at VertifyData


AK operates as a true part of our team – especially Anna and Sara. They are analytical, thoughtful, data driven, and fun to work with on sales & marketing – and their technical ability to manage our CRM/Hubs platform is strong. AK rolls up their sleeves to be a true team player, jumping into whatever is needed to make the business successful. They are creative and agile in nature, which is important as we learn to scale our GTM efforts.

Stephen Bulfer,
CEO / Co-founder, Streamloan


Imagine waking up every day with an average of 3-4 emails a day from warm leads that are being forwarded over to you. Sound too good to be true? That’s what I thought before working with AK Ops and Danielle Matthews. They are “difference makers” inside and outside of the workplace. They truly go above and beyond for their clients. Danielle is a rockstar. She is encouraging, disciplined, and equally determined as I am. I am glad to have her as my account manager.

Gavin DeWitt,
Sales at BotDoc


Amy and team have been a phenomenal addition to our marketing efforts, becoming an integral piece of our go to market team. Lead by the amazing Sara Bray, AK has driven significant top of funnel growth through multiple channels. The amount of time and dedication to our account is second to none, allowing us to hone in on what is working, making macro and micro adjustments to achieve a broad spectrum of specific KPIs. Thank you!
