North Georgia Biz Hires Experienced Manager for Athens, Augusta

101 Mobility of North Georgia has hired Chris Doster to maintain its Athens and Augusta territories.

101 Mobility of North Georgia’s family is growing by one member. Chris Doster (of Athens, Georgia) has recently joined the team to manage both the Athens and Augusta territories.

“Helping people is my calling,” Doster explained. “That’s the rewarding part of the job for me, getting people their equipment and helping their families.”

In February, 101 Mobility of North Georgia, a leading provider of mobility and accessibility products in the area, purchased additional franchise territories in Athens and Augusta. Two months later, Doster was hired to maintain these areas.

Doster laughed “It feels good” when asked about doing work in his hometown of Athens. His previous work history includes Care Medical, Fuller Rehabilitation, and Home Medical Professionals; all of which fall in line with products/services offered by 101 Mobility of North Georgia.

“I’ve got 19 years of experience working in DME (durable medical equipment) and marketing,” said Doster. “I want to be able to bring a lot of my contacts from previous jobs to be able to grow 101 Mobility of North Georgia.”

Doster said the next step for him would be reaching out to families in Augusta, which is a completely new market for him. “We’re going to try to tackle it. We’re going to try to build it from the ground up. But with 101 Mobility of North Georgia, I know we can do it.”

Garol Orr, who co-owns the business with her husband Bill Orr, said Doster’s addition is a blessing to her company. “He’s very caring of clients and is so knowledgeable about product options,” she explained.

Doster’s duties will have him wearing multiple hats, including: working with the VA, building business-to-business relations, getting involved in the community, and performing customer evaluations.

“Doing the marketing is my favorite,” he explained. “Getting out and networking for the company to grow the business, that’s the part I enjoy a lot.”

“His experience in working with patients and the community just makes him such a great fit for us,” Orr remarked.
