A 50-year milestone distinguishes anyone in the industry, but when that time is spent at a single company, it becomes even more impressive. Such is the case with Willy Huber Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Piller’s Fine Foods, who recently celebrated his 50th anniversary with the company.

Willy Huber Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Piller's Fine Foods“I’m most proud of having been able to work alongside my father and brothers for many years, seeing what we built and how far we’ve come together, but none of it would be possible without the support and dedication of our people,” Huber Jr. expressed. “I am so grateful to my family, our long-standing vendors and customers, and Premium Brands for their support.”

Wilhelm Huber Jr., more affectionately known as Willy, is the eldest son of company Co-Founder Wilhelm Huber Sr. Starting at the company’s Kitchener Farmer’s Market stand as a teenager and later apprenticing in Germany, Huber Jr. emerged as a fifth-generation sausage maker, bringing his expertise back to Canada and Piller’s in 1974. Over his career, he has held many positions including Sausage Maker, Plant Manager, and Vice President of Operations, and was ultimately appointed to President and CEO in 2000.

Piller’s was founded in 1957 by Huber Sr. and became a division of leading Canadian food company Premium Brands Holdings Corporation in 2011, a press release noted.

George Paleologou, President and Chief Executive Officer, Premium Brands Holdings Corporation“Fifty years is an incredible accomplishment, and we’re happy to celebrate this milestone with Willy,” says George Paleologou, President and Chief Executive Officer of Premium Brands. “Willy embodies our values of entrepreneurial spirit, coupled with a passion for supporting his local community.”

Outside of Piller’s, Huber Jr. remains actively involved with the Waterloo Wolves U18 AAA hockey team as a founding member of the operating committee, a position he has held for over 23 years.

When asked about the future of Piller’s, Huber Jr. expressed excitement about the company's expansion into new markets, investment in cutting-edge technology, and the ongoing commitment to delivering high-quality, innovative products to the market.

Congratulations to this industry mainstay!
