The Medical Business Development team — most often referred to as MBD — has been working on medical carts since 2002 and proudly partners with medical device companies across the nation to develop and engineer innovative solutions for their custom medical cart challenges.
More often than not, Nick will be your first point of contact. After your proposal is underway, he will hand you off to one of our Directors of Business Development.
Nick started his career at HUI as a high school senior enrolled in the Youth Apprenticeship program through Lakeshore Technical College. Since then he's worked on our fabrication floor and spent 13 years in HR before ultimately moving to sales and marketing for MBD in 2013. Nick enjoys collaborating with his team on new projects and watching carts go through the development process and into production. Over the duration of his HUI career, Nick is most proud of initiating and developing a successful marketing program.
Nick enjoys camping, traveling, carving ice sculptures and playing soccer with his wife and four children. He's an avid classic car enthusiast and has maintained a 1966 Chevelle Malibu since he was 16 years old.
Chuck acts as the main point of contact for customers on the East Coast from the moment Nick introduces you throughout production.
Chuck started his career at HUI in 2005 as a fabrication technician and held various titles on the manufacturing floor before joining MBD as an account manager in 2015. He enjoys working with the MBD team and is proud of the work they accomplish within a short timeframe. Chuck also takes pride in representing HUI to current and prospective customers.
If he has the opportunity to be outside, you'll find Chuck outside! He enjoys camping and going on hikes with his girlfriend and their dogs. He hunts in the fall, goes ice fishing in the winter and spends a lot of his time helping on his family's farm, learning about soil management and crop rotation, taking care of his own livestock and renovating his late 19th-century brick farmhouse.
David acts as the main point of contact for customers on the West Coast from the moment Nick introduces you throughout production.
David most recently started his career at HUI in 2016 as West Coast director of sales. He likes being able to re-engage with customers he has known for years and enjoys being part of a team.
"I am proud to have people rely on me and to rely on them. It's this combined respect we all have for one another that fosters teamwork."
David enjoys a myriad of outdoor activities: running, Ragnar races, Urbanthons obstacle runs, hiking, dirt biking, ATVs, Renaissanse fairs, river running, sand buggies and target shooting. He is also an avid fan of "The Walking Dead."
It's almost guaranteed you'll meet Mark at the initial project meeting. He's also a crucial asset to the engineering and prototyping stages of your custom cart project.

Nicole plays an integral role in putting together your proposal. You'll meet her on the proposal review call. From there, she will manage your custom cart project through production and then some!
Nicole started her career at HUI in 2007. Initially, she was hired on as a design engineer for the industrial side of our business. She joined the MBD team in 2012 as an engineer before eventually transitioning into our project manager. Nicole loves working with our cross-functional team and, like any good project manager, when customers hit their development lead times.
Nicole participates in at least one 5K a month (Wisconsin seasons permitting) and has completed two Tough Mudders. She also loves spending time outside with her family — running, kayaking, biking and hiking.
Greg will collaborate with you throughout the engineering and prototyping stages. He'll also be fundamental for implementing any future changes to your custom cart.
Greg started his career at HUI in 2005. Since then he has held multiple titles — from fabricator, manufacturing and assembly engineer to lean lead and design engineer. He has played a fundamental role in implementing and maintaining HUI's lean strategies. Greg joined MBD in 2012 and enjoys working with "such an incredibly talented group of people [and] creating solutions for customers."
Greg loves being outdoors — hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, hiking and so on. He also coaches his kids' baseball and softball teams, and enjoys spending time with his family.
You'll engage with Dwayne throughout the engineering and prototyping stages. He'll also be fundamental for implementing any future changes to your custom cart.
Dwayne started his career at HUI in 1983. Since then he has held multiple titles — from fabricator, scheduler and manufacturing engineer to quality lead and design engineer. Dwayne joined the MBD team at its initiation in 2007. He has played a fundamental role in implementing and maintaining HUI's quality system and prides himself in his keen attention to detail and ability to construct macros. However, the initial design phase is his favorite part of any cart project because of the engineering challenges it presents.
Dwayne enjoys camping, hiking, biking and kayaking with his family.
