He added, “I was attracted to their ability to avoid the pitfalls and still stay in a leadership role with cutting edge products, aggressive pricing, and strong commission plans.”
NBS President Russell Markman stated “I’ve admired George’s business acumen and understanding of channel partner needs since first dealing with him as an agent myself in the early 90’s, and I am delighted he has joined the NBS family. The industry-wide respect George has attained is richly deserved.” Reiterating his enthusiasm for the task ahead, Mr. Hampton stated, “I look forward to contributing significantly to the continued expansion and growth of the company.”
