LONG BEACH, CALIF., March 16th, 2020KENWOOD USA announced it has hired The Progressive Group to represent its products to retailers in the Michigan market. The previous representation for Michigan came from Tim Hill of Pinnacle Sales, of whom was recently hired by KENWOOD as their Midwest Region Sales Manager.

“We are honored with the opportunity to work with The Progressive Group in the Michigan market,” Hill said. “Their proven success of market leadership and support to their customers is highly valued and recognized, and we know that this will only be further enhanced by their new presence.”

The Progressive Group brings a wealth of industry experience, providing representation for brands across 28 states by their 42 employees.

The company also carries an impressive presence throughout the nation, touting six warehouses and being under the umbrella of their 2.3 Billion Dollar parent company, Patrick Industries.
