Hub Group Company Review

Hub Group

Hub Group company logo

In 1971, Phillip and Joyce founded Hub Group (then known as Hub City Terminals) in Hinsdale, Illinois. The company was started with $10,000 and was located in a windowless, one-room office above a flower shop. The 43-year-old Phillip Yeager quit his job at the Pennsylvania Railroad, where he had worked for 19 years, to create Hub Group.

In 1996, Hub Group held an initial public offering. A year later, the company became the first intermodal marketing company to top $1 billion in yearly revenue. Hub Group had 34 regional offices by 1998, when the company borrowed $100 million to begin purchasing all outstanding minority interests in the company's regional offices.

Hub Group founder and Chairman Phillip Yeager died in October 2008 from complications following a heart attack. Yeager was 80 years old. Company CEO David Yeager became chairman of Hub Group in November 2008.
