In Memoriam: Former NSI Industries Senior V.P. & Founding Partner Victor Hawdon Has Passed Away

Hawdon was Instrumental in Developing Many Products, Sales Tools, and Packaging Alternatives Used Across the Electrical Industry Since the Mid-1980s

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., May 22, 2023 - NSI Industries, LLC is sorry to announce that Victor Hawdon, former senior vice president and founding partner of NSI Industries, passed away on May 6.


"Vic was unique in both this personal and professional life," said Randall Parian, friend and former president at NSI. "He coined the former NSI motto: ‘NSI~Never Say Impossible', which we strived to achieve on a daily basis."

Victor was instrumental in developing many products, sales tools, and packaging alternatives used across the electrical industry since the mid-1980s. He had a talent for identifying people outside of the industry, many of whom progressed to management positions and are still in the industry today. From the NSI beginnings in Charlotte, N.C. to the first Huntersville, N.C. headquarters and warehouse he helped to design and build, Vic's antics amused absolutely everyone he worked with. Whether at shows, conferences, or traveling in his beloved southern sales territory (including Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas), his wit and humor followed him; he will be missed by so many in the U.S. and Canada.

"Since NSI was founded, we have continued to grow and evolve based on Vic's principles, work ethic, and determination as he was instrumental in both laying this company's foundation as well as growing it for decades that helped make all of this possible," said G. R. Schrotenboer, NSI CEO. "Vic's legacy will continue on with NSI."
