Huber & Associates

Solving Business Problems Using Technology

Posted online

“Even though we have had an office in Springfield for over 20 years, not many businesses, outside of our clients, recognize the Huber name,” says Shawna Feuerbacher, Client Executive.
“We aren’t a new company. We have just grown organically over the years. With the changing dynamic of technology, we’ve recently started a marketing campaign to grow our market share in Springfield.”

Huber & Associates was founded in Jefferson City in 1986. Shortly after, when a client asked if the company could help a friend in Springfield, there was no hesitation. Word of mouth about Huber spread rapidly, which led to the company opening their Springfield branch in 1994.

“An interesting fact about Huber & Associates is that we are woman owned. Our CEO, Elizabeth Huber, is such an inspiration,” says Lana Caulliette, First Impressions Specialist. “She encourages the entire team to be involved in the community that helps make Huber what it is.”

Standing Apart Fromthe IT Crowd
“Our biggest differentiator in the IT world, is that we don’t solve technology problems, we solve business problems using technology,” says Feuerbacher. “We very proactively manage our accounts so you have fewer issues to begin with.” A unique benefit that Huber provides to their clients is a dedicated Virtual Chief Information Officer (VCIO). “A lot of smaller and mid-size businesses might not be able to afford a Chief Technology Officer even though they could really benefit from one,” says Feuerbacher. “We’re able to give you this amazing executive who’s focusing on how technology can help grow your business but they’re on our payroll, not yours.”

Huber & Associates is also a Premier IBM Business Partner. “We do a lot of legacy infrastructure work. Many companies run their entire business on these systems. We have engineers who’ve spent their entire careers understanding and servicing these systems,” says Feuerbacher. “We believe this is another of our big differentiators.”

“At Huber, we are in the business of getting to know you, your family and your core business infrastructure, including team competencies and technologies. Once we understand those fundamentals, we can truly engage in a mutually beneficial partnership,” says Dean Bergman, Client Executive.

Making Philanthropy a Priority
In the spirit of becoming more active in the Springfield business community, the company relocated to a new modern and inviting office in Farmers Park. They jumped headlong into various industry and business associations as well as philanthropic organizations. “Our purpose is to have a hero’s impact on our community, on our clients, and on our employees,” says Feuerbacher. Service is one of the core values at Team Huber, so much so that the company uses #HuberHeroes throughout their social media. 

As Huber & Associates invests more into the Springfield community, they recently took that idea one step further by hiring Lana Caulliette. They turned a traditional office manager role into a Community Development role. Primarily, Caulliette is focused on community development and marketing initiatives. She currently serves as special events chair for AITP of the Ozarks (Association of Information Technology Professionals,) as well as taking part in The Network, Chamber Ambassador, United Way of the Ozarks, and Junior League of Springfield. She finds her work with AITP the most rewarding.

“We don’t want to be a bystander in the world today,” says Caulliette. “We want to help Springfield businesses grow and have a positive impact on the community as a whole.”
