Customers crave value, one-on-one attention and interaction, which is a tall order with a large corporation or a retail chain. One Cincinnati company offers an innovative solution without sacrificing their signature quality.
The V Collective offers their clients small business service and versatility with the proficiency of a larger corporation. Dan and Janine Hueber began with Hueber Brothers, Inc. the original company in 1980, when Dan’s dream for a coalition of proficient craftspeople began to form. Throughout 36 years, five companies joined common ownership as a group now known as The V Collective. All together, they have enriched Greater Cincinnati with functional and beautiful fitted furniture, cabinetry and interior woodwork.
Art Dierks joined the team last year, passionate about the foundation of that dream and the potential for the next level.
Dierks, COO of The V Collective, had been in the building materials business for more than 14 years as the senior vice president of operations at TimberTech. His leadership philosophy is driven by his passion for building an outstanding product. “I also enjoy building strong teams and creating a system where employees respect each other and understand how each role is interconnected and contributes to the success of the business,” says Dierks.
The V Collective team is comprised of the Kitchen Design Studio of Cincinnati, Innerwood & Company, Don Justice Cabinet Makers, Hueber Brothers, Inc. and Seven Hills Commercial Carpentry.
Each company builds upon each other’s strengths to provide the optimum experience for families, builders, architects and interior designers.
“The quality factor of our companies is really top-of-the line,” says Dierks. “I’ve often heard builders comment that Hueber Brothers, our interior trim company, sets the Cincinnati standard for quality. The same can be said of our cabinetry.”
“We have developed a one-stop shop with the expertise acquired throughout the years. We can design, build and install your project with one point of contact,” says Dierks. “This capability combined with our friendly and responsive team, makes us easy to work with.”
High standards are a crucial part in maintaining the company’s integrity. “We value honesty and openness with our clients, and our commitment to quality prevents us from putting out any product that falls below our standards,” says Dierks.
Dierks says he envisions a promising future for the team as the Cincinnati building market grows and satisfied clients refer new customers to The V Collective.
“Dan and Janine Hueber have built a solid business on a foundation of high quality standards and talented people,” says Dierks. “We produce beautiful cabinetry and interior woodwork that anyone would desire for their home or office. This combination sets the stage for growth and affords me the exciting opportunity to help direct the next chapter for The V Collective.”
In his free time, Dierks enjoys boating with family and friends on the Ohio River and volunteers as a mentor with Next Step Mentoring, which is part of Cincinnati Works.
“Next Step Mentoring partners volunteers with young adults who are about to ‘age out’ of foster care and are at risk of homelessness, incarceration and unemployment,” says Dierks. “The mentor relationship helps the young adults transition to independent living and become economically independent. The program really helps a great group of young adults to find success through a difficult transition.”
The V Collective is located at 21 Whitney Drive, Milford, OH 45150. For more information, call 513.707.1495 or visit their website at www.thevcollective.com.
