HGA Group Expands Into Illinois

Boutilier joins the independent manufacturers' rep firm.


The HGA Group, an independent manufacturers' rep firm with operations in Indiana and Michigan, has entered the Illinois market. To help its presence throughout Illinois and the Chicago area, the HGA Group hired industry veteran Carl Boutilier, formerly of Mirkovich & Associates.

"I've counted HGA as friends for more than two decades. They were asked to expand their coverage area, and I'm glad to be a part of it. I will continue doing what I love to do, right here," Boutilier said. "I've enjoyed my years at Mirkovich & Associates. It was a lot of fun, and the friendships developed will last a lifetime."
