Fred Combs Sr.
Chief of Operations
I spent 22 years with UniFirst Corp learning all aspects of the industrial routing service sales meeting many interesting people along the way. I have recently made the career change to join my Brother and close family friend in the mobile hearing aid industry in Virginia. I enjoy meeting and helping those we meet and find my new career both enjoyable and satisfying. I like to spend time with family and friends and enjoy cooking, fishing and spending times outdoors.
