Monica Akbar

Chief Compliance Officer


Nordstrom Management Development Program

Series 99, 24, 7, 63, SIE Registration

Roy and Joshua were very fortunate when Monica accepted their offer to transition from her long standing management career at Nordstrom to join the Everspire team. While at Nordstrom she worked in management for 9 out of her 13 years with them. Monica stands alone in her commitment to Everspire’s clients: few are able to both successfully manage a vast number of diverse tasks on behalf of clients and make a personal connection with nearly every interaction. It is not uncommon for Monica to wake up in the middle of the night to respond to a client email or come in at 6 a.m. to complete a project.

Outside the office, Monica is interested in just about everything. She loves to travel, whether traveling in the Western US, riding street bikes with her husband, or traveling to California to visit family and friends. Closer to home, she loves to take long walks with her puppies, read extensively, and work on her own writing.
