Marberry comments, “Huber is poised for successful journey ahead, and Gretchen is the right leader to guide the enterprise to its next pinnacle of achievements. She genuinely appreciates the unique aspects of Huber, and she is passionate about keeping the company strongly aligned with the family’s long-term aspirations.”
