The Associate of the Year award recognizes an associate member for his or her accomplishments in the areas of service to the Atlanta real estate industry and association, professional excellence and community involvement, and furthering the mission and goals of the association. The 2011 Associate of the Year is Cindy Huber.
Cindy Huber has been in the homebuilding industry for over 29 years. She started out at the Louisiana Home Builders Association where she served the industry through various associate roles as a vendor, volunteer and council board member. Cindy joined the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA) and the Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) in 1996 when she began her career at KNOWAtlanta Magazine.
In 2001, after being promoted to the position of Publisher at KNOWAtlanta, Cindy focused her career on promoting the Atlanta metropolitan area and the quality of life one would find here when making Atlanta home. Her passion for Atlanta and the housing industry led KNOWAtlanta to become one of the top magazines in the city, as well as a sought-after resource. Currently, Cindy is Vice President of Sales for the Eastern Division of StrucSure Home Warranty, LLC, the nation’s fastest growing new home warranty and risk management provider. She directs the branding and marketing efforts of StrucSure and to provide premium programs to a select group of builders and remodelers.
Through the years Cindy has passionately committed herself to the HBA and the SMC where she has served on various committees. In 2000 she was elected to the SMC Board of Directors where she served for 10 years. In 2009, during her year as Chairman of the SMC, the council won the gold award at The Nationals for the “Best SMC in the Nation.” For the past two years Cindy has been a vital part of the HBA Board of Directors as the chairman of the Membership Committee. She has worked tirelessly and enthusiastically to recruit and retain HBA members through these tough economic times. In addition she is a huge supporter of the HomeAid Atlanta, the HBA’s designated charity.
Cindy is definitely a multi-tasker. When not traveling the Southeast for StrucSure or heading up a Membership Drive, Cindy is the mom two boys, Craig and Ryan. She regularly volunteers at their school, Big Creek Elementary, she is a karate and baseball mom, domestic goddess, executive home manager and homework diva. She leaves the Cub Scout duties to her husband, Michael.
The HBA is proud to recognize Cindy Huber as the 2011 Associate of the Year.
