Back to roots

Prior to establishing RepsSouth, the original owners sharpened their skills under the tutelage of the iconic Austin Hansen, founder of The Hansen Group. In a way, RepsSouth is returning to their roots to help continue to grow the legacy that began nearly 60 years ago.

"We are thrilled to see this broad and deep expansion of The Hansen Group. After nearly 60 years of operation in our territory (Georgia, Alabama, eastern Tennessee, and the Florida panhandle) The Hansen Group has created a reputation for running a well managed, highly aggressive, highly professional rep group."
