Hoback worked for farm machinery manufacturer Flexicoil and later Case New Holland from 1986 to 2000, when he purchased the family farm in 2000. He subsequently expanded the farm to 3,300 acres (13 km2) as well as developing custom spraying and trucking business.

It also works to strengthen the role of legislatures in democratic development and promotes the harmonization of legislation and hemispheric integration as instruments of sustainable and harmonious development.

In February 2011, Hoback was also elected President of ParlAmericas at the Association’s 8th Annual FIPA-Parlamericas meeting in Asuncion, Paraguay. He now serves as the organization's Past-President.
