Joe Hobby has been a member of the Joe Piper Sales Team since 1999. After graduating with a degree in Marketing from the University of Alabama in 1975, Joe began his career in consumer packaging. Five years later, he moved to the food brokerage industry – starting out as a sales representative and working his way up to Vice President of Sales for Budd Mayer of Alabama. Joe currently works with Marianne Griffin to sell paperboard in several eastern and central states.
Joe and his wife Carol have been married for 45 years – which might be his greatest accomplishment. Together they have three boys, Matt, Jeff, and Brad. Most importantly, he is a proud grandparent of Rilynne, a feisty 5-year-old girl.
In his spare time, Joe enjoys many activities. He is an accomplished writer and a published author. He wrote jokes for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show monologue for over 25 years. Joe also enjoys playing golf and doing volunteer work for his church.
