Michael Miqueli, Businessman of the Year

When the Miqueli family came to the United States in the ’60s fleeing communist Cuba, they faced hardship but also saw opportunity to raise a now successful son with a strong work ethic and a passion for entrepreneurship. As in any Latino family, respect and veneration for his parents played a large role in Michael Miqueli’s life.

The founder and chief executive officer of SA Trucking DBA San Antonio Broker Services, Miqueli decided to name the company after his family’s place of origin, San Antonio, Cuba, as an indelible mark that reminds him where he comes from and how much he has achieved.

He positioned the company with a customer-centered approach, developing strong service relationships with new customers and fostering growth with current ones by expanding on additional areas of service including intermodal and refrigerated business.
