David comes to Elizabeth’s Wish from a place deeply rooted in long-term friendship with Elizabeth and Ross. His steadfast commitment to the mission of early symptom detection education marries his professional skills beautifully to the critical need for a change in protocol for symptom assessment.
As our Chief Operating Officer, David Hunt brings to the Foundation skills in team building, strategy, operations, business development and critically, what every organization needs, someone who gets stuff done. In his “day job” at Johnson and Johnson, David crosses regional boundaries in health systems, pharmaceuticals, supply chain, infrastructure, and commercial applications. There he coaches and guides software build teams while encouraging the implementation of outcome-oriented, metrics-driven best practices. David holds a dual MBA (Business Administration) /MBI (Business Informatics) from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus Graduate School of Business in the Netherlands.
We call David a serial entrepreneur. In 25 years he has worked on Wall Street, been a co-founder of a Venture-backed dotcom and built small businesses from scratch that grew into mid-sized companies. Though we call his wife, Dr. Stacy Hunt, the energizer bunny, they are peas in that same kindred spirit pod. They co-direct two therapy group practices and a real estate holding company in Newtown, Pennsylvania while raising a combination of yours, mine and ours children (5) living on their farmette residence with goats, chickens, bees and more.
