Meet Bob Hamilton
Bob Hamilton grew up in Jackson, TN and began his career in the office equipment business in 1975 at Tom Lawler’s of Jackson. After only four years of sales he was promoted to partner, a role he remained in from 1979 until XMC, Inc.’s inception in 1991. XMC Inc., a Xerox authorized sales agency, opened as a subsidiary of Tom Lawler’s and Bob Hamilton took full ownership in 1992 and has grown the business exponentially since that time. In the first year, there was one employee with sales figures of $200,000. Today, XMC, Inc. has over 60 employees with sales figures in excess of $50 million.
Bob Hamilton’s efforts have led to many successes with the Xerox Corporation. XMC was nominated for the small business award from the Memphis Business Journal and has won numerous national awards for their performance including the Xerox Gold Award of Excellence, President’s Club and Superior Service Award. Xerox has also recognized Bob Hamilton and XMC for its outstanding achievements throughout the past year by naming them a Platinum Agency and has been named a 2010 Star Seven Top Performer at the Xerox Corporation’s National Agent Owner’s Conference. This award is the top honor for Xerox sales agents and recognizes extraordinary performance and leadership. Only 16 out of 400 agencies earn this seven-star ranking. XMC show sales figures from Xerox that rank the Memphis-based company as the number one sales agent in the 24-state Central Region and number two in the U.S.
Bob Hamilton says the secret to his success is, “Treat people the way you want to be treated and by under-promising and over-delivering.”
