The Good Example
Hunt is driven, so when he takes something on, he sees it through. It’s always been that way—since volunteering to shovel snow for senior citizens in high school or working his first job as a hockey referee. At work, he inspires clients and team-members by solving challenges with pragmatism and high standards of excellence. When he does shift down gears, you'll find him reading on the beach, spending time with family, or enjoying activities like golf, paddle tennis, and skiing.
