David Arvig

Vice president/COO
Arvig Enterprises Inc.

David Arvig has helped grow Arvig Enterprises into one of the largest independent telecommunications and broadband providers in the nation, leading the company through 17 acquisitions since he became COO in 2001. In August, Arvig acquired AGL Consulting, increasing the company’s metro fiber footprint from nearly 600 route miles to more than 800—a third of its total network in Minnesota. And while Arvig has been active in the metro, its background is in rural parts of the state, with plans to add another $350 million of fiber in greater Minnesota over the next 10 years.
