Meet Employee of the Quarter Chuck Hubler and Tyler Huycke
Congratulation to our Sales Manager, Chuck Hubler, our Employee of the Quarter for October 2019. Chuck’s years of experience in the auto business and his no-nonsense approach to management make him a valued employee. He’s dedicated, a hard worker and a whiz at obtaining financing for our customers!
Chuck was born in Massachusetts and lived for a short time in Shirley, MA on an Army base. His family moved to Pennsylvania for a brief period of time but Keyport, New Jersey is where Chuck grew up and graduated from high school.
In 1989 he moved to Washington and worked at Snappy Car Rental for several years. After that he then joined the Jenny Craig company as a counselor and enjoyed helping people reach their weight loss goals for over 2 years. He sold jewelry for a bit before moving into the car business in 1993 and never looked back.
His first job was as a part-time car salesman and in his first month he sold 13 cars and then went fulltime! He spent 2 years as a salesman then was promoted to Used Car Manager and eventually Sales Manager at Auburn Nissan. After 9 years he moved on to the Bruce Titus Auto Group and stayed there for 8 years.
Chuck has been at Honda for the last 7 years and has been with us since our opening day 2 years ago.
Chuck and his wife Jamie recently moved their family to Elma. They have 3 children, Blake who is 24 and serves in the US Army, their daughter Presley (13 years old) and their other son Beckett (10 years old). They also have 3 dogs and two cats rounding out their family.
Chuck is an avid sports fan and cheers for the Red Sox, the Bruins and the Cowboys. He also loves to help teach Presley softball.
He enjoys camping with his family as often as possible. He loves to grill and he uses his barbeque year-round to make ribs, steaks and pizza.
Chuck takes great pride in having the greenest, lushest lawn in the neighborhood. He cuts his grass at least 3 times a week and fertilizes it once a month. It’s beautiful and the best on the street and probably in town!
Chuck is our right-hand guy and we are very thankful he is part of our management team and our Honda of Grays Harbor family.
Thank you for all you do every day.

Family is his top priority and he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Rachelle, his two sons, Kaden (11 years old), Jaxon (8 years old), his daughter, Emma (6 months), Red (his dog), Becky (his cat), 2 snakes, a Gecko, a bearded dragon and 100 fish and all of his family. One of the highlights of Tyler’s week is Sunday dinner with his entire family.
Tyler loves to take impromptu road trip adventures with his family. He enjoys reading, especially John Grisham novels, and deer hunting. Just like his Grandfather, his favorite baseball team is the NY Yankees. You can also find him traveling about town in Nemo, his orange Honda Civic!
Tyler said “I really enjoy working at Honda of Grays Harbor because of the positive direction it is headed. I believe all the changes that have been made are for the best. We have a great team here, especially the Service Department, and I can’t wait to see how far we can go!”
