Dr. Huck began his professional life as a lawyer, businessman, and entrepreneur after graduating from Bucknell University and the Northeastern University School of Law. He started his legal career in the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office, soon moving up to the position of Deputy Attorney General and Director of the Antitrust and Complex Litigation Division. After being appointed by Governor Gaston Caperton as Legal Counsel to the Governor of West Virginia, Dr. Huck served on the Governor’s executive staff for four years before moving into the private sector. He was the co-founder and managing partner of the Huck & Gillooly law firm in Charleston, West Virginia, and the founder and President of the American Mediation Group. Subsequently, Dr. Huck left the private practice of law a first time for a two-year stint as District Manager of the American General Corporation’s pension subsidiary operations for West Virginia. After that hiatus, Dr. Huck returned to the practice of law as a member of the Allen, Guthrie, & McHugh law firm in Charleston, and then as a criminal courts judge in Montgomery, West Virginia. Dr. Huck left the practice of law for the second and final time to pursue his doctorate in Leadership at West Virginia University. In addition to his other efforts during this period, Dr. Huck also served for nine years as the Chairman of the West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority. After successfully completing his doctoral studies in 2001, Dr. Huck was hired as a faculty member at the McDonough Center for Leadership at Marietta College in Ohio. During his time at Marietta, Dr. Huck received that institution’s Outstanding Faculty Member award and was granted promotion and tenure by the college’s board of trustees. Dr. Huck began his appointment as the W.R. Gruver Chair of Leadership Studies, and Co-Director of the Entrepreneurship for the Public Good Program, at Berea College in August 2007.
