KAI Enterprises has announced the promotion of Controller Michelle Huber to Vice President of Finance. Huber joined KAI in October 2019.
In her new leadership role, Huber will provide full financial oversight of both the construction and professional service business units at KAI, plus lead all aspects of the company’s budgeting and forecasting.
Huber has 11 years of industry experience, having previously worked as a Controller at Kaskaskia Engineering Group in Belleville, Illinois and as a Senior Tax Accountant at Brown Smith Wallace in St. Louis.
“Having Michelle step into her new role has been a real boost of energy. She is proactive, brings a holistic understanding of corporate financials, works seamlessly and effectively with our entire leadership team—and most importantly, Michelle is unafraid to challenge and push for answers,” said KAI CEO Michael Kennedy, Jr. “As CEO, I need a collaborative partner. Someone that tells me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear. Michelle is that partner and has quickly blended in well with our company leadership. We are fortunate to have Michelle at KAI.”
She has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and an MBA from McKendree University in Lebanon, Ill.
