“Since joining Allied Group Sales in January 2020 I have had the great opportunity to work with, and learn from, many of the knowledgeable individuals at AGS,” remarked Nick Hobbs, Principal, VP Sales Electrical Legrand. “While working as a member of the Legrand team at AGS, I’ve been able to work in the everyday details of Wiremold, Cablofil, Pass and Seymour, On-Q, and Connectrac and learn about all of the fantastic products and services they offer. In that time, I’ve also had good exposure to the other parts of our business and I am proud to represent all of the manufacturers that Allied Group Sales has partnered with.”

“I am passionate about people. I enjoy getting to know and help others whether it is at work, at home, or within the community. I love meeting people, learning their story and getting to know their interests and passions. Individual’s differences are a beautiful thing and I love that no two people are exactly alike. The sum is always greater than its parts and I love seeing that in action when working with others. I am so thrilled to be part of such a great team at AGS and look forward to supporting their efforts to better serve our customer and manufacturer partners.” added Hobbs.
