MIAA founder Jim Stuber has a passion for staunching the flow of American jobs overseas and bringing jobs back to America in large part due to his family’s background in steelmaking in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

Jim has devoted his career to public policy, law and entrepreneurship. He began his career as legislative assistant to a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, focusing on matters before the Committee on Energy and Commerce.
