At the end of 2022, the One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning team welcomed a new General Manager, Mark Hudson. Hudson has been part of the Cincinnati team for three years as Sales Manager before transitioning into the General Manager role. His experience in relationship building, leading with passion, and managing teams made him an excellent fit for this role. In his new role, Hudson is looking forward to leading his team to success.
Hudson was raised in the Cincinnati area and attended Mount Vernon Nazarene University, where he earned his bachelor's degree in Business Management. He was introduced to the home service industry when his mentor suggested a career change with One Hour. From there, he spent time learning the industry, developing a knowledgeable team, and leading his team to success.
The One Hour team has served Cincinnati and the surrounding area for over 60 years and will continue to provide reliable and efficient HVAC services. Hudson says, "The team here in Cincinnati, along with the team at Authority Brands, has been inspiring, and I'm fortunate and grateful to be a part of it."
Since One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning is part of a family of brands serving the Cincinnati community, Hudson will also oversee Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, Mister Sparky, and STOP Restoration. This family of brands strives to provide homeowners with reliable home services under one roof.
