Our History

Since 1984, Hobbs & Associates has continued to maintain a strong family culture and employs over 170 employees working across three states and the District of Columbia (Washington DC). For over 25 years, Brad Hobbs has served as President and CEO and has continued to grow the business through dedicated service and commitment to our customers.

Over the years, Brad has also launched several other successful businesses in the Southeast, including a successful joint venture forming Insight Partners (www.insightusa.com) in 2016. Insight serves HVAC customers in North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

Brad credits his father with inspiring him to grow the family business. Hobbs’ father, Mr. William (Bill) Hobbs, gave his son the reins of the company when Brad was 27 years old. “There are a lot of 85-year-old fathers still running their companies, and their 60-year old son still works for them,” Brad shared. “But our father had no desire to do that. He put the next generation of Hobbs in a position to grow and lead the business.” Brad’s brothers BJ and John Hobbs continue to stay involved with the business as well.
