This year, Jefferson City Magazine recognizes 10 Ones To Watch—a group of up-and-comers who are not only high-character individuals, but who also have achieved things that have bettered the community. This group inspires through faith, drive, and dedication, and they have shown effective leadership in both their professional and personal involvements.
Director of Business Development, Huber & Associates
A lifelong learner and builder, Michael Huber serves the community by leaving it better than he found it.
I am Michael Huber. Son of Jim and Elizabeth Huber and brother of David Huber. I’m the husband of Jessie Huber and father of our dog, Miller, and daughter, Olivia Huber. So far, my life has been about learning and building. I’ve learned in school, in relationships, and in life to build better relationships, my career, and a balance of work and family. In the future, I want to continue to learn and build things that will help me and stand the test of time. I want to be the best husband, father, and employer that I can be. The more I can help and build up those around me, the happier I will be in the long run. I serve my community by using the mindset of leaving it better than you found it. Whether I am helping with nonprofits in town, the chamber, or at our business I try to leave things better than I found them. If I succeed, the next person that comes to do the same thing will already be heading in the right direction and can hopefully make that much more progress.
I AM MOST GRATEFUL FOR…The family and friends that surround me. They have made me who I am today and push me to be better tomorrow.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF AT YOUR ABSOLUTE BEST
I am the best dad and husband that I can be for my family. I am leading a company that is the premier employer in the community, and I can shoot under parany time I step on a golf course. If I have all those going for me, I will be one happy man!
I WANT TO SPEND MORE TIME…with my family and being outdoors.
I WANT TO SPEND LESS TIME…cleaning baby bottles.
MICHAEL’S DEFINITION OF SUCCESS
Success is providing for my family and making sure they have all that they need to enjoy and succeed in life.
I value honesty and the ability to laugh with and at one another.
My parents. When you give and help others, it comes back tenfold.
