According to a news release, Hunt comes to Skyway from St. Petersburg-based BayFirst National Bank, where he worked for 10 years, most recently as executive vice president and chief strategy officer.
Prior to BayFirst, Hunt worked for 17 years for investment banking firm Kendrick Pierce & Co. In that role, the release states, he completed hundreds of capital and M&A advisory transactions and worked alongside Skyway CEO Russ Hunt.
