Rockville, MD-  National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) named Allison Combs as Sales Director in January 2018. This is a newly created position for NLCS, which will help oversee sales efforts and initiatives throughout the National Lutheran family of brands. Combs brings over 20 years of sales experience to the role, seven of those being with the National Lutheran family.

“We are pleased to have Allison assisting us in our sales efforts throughout the National Lutheran family,” NLCS’ Chief Operating Officer Cyndi Walters said. “This will allow us to provide additional support to our boots-on-the-ground teams, as well as bring efficiencies and more resources to our ever-growing family of brands.”
