Steve was with Capital Access Network almost since its inception. I worked with Steve for 13 years, and have always been impressed with how Steve can take on any department of the company and turn it into a successful unit. He understands how to rally the necessary team members around his vision and gain support within the company. Steve has many strengths: he is disciplined, he sets himself high standards and reaches to meet every goal set. He earns respect from his peers and most importantly, his honesty and business ethics enables him, and the company he represents, to be successful.

When it comes to the MCA Industry, there is no one with more experience than Steve Hunter. I had the privilege of working with and being mentored by Steve for 2 years at Knight Capital Funding. During his time at KCF, I witnessed firsthand his ability to build out the Operations Department as well as create risk modeling that enhanced both scalability and portfolio management. Steve is an excellent leader who displays the skills necessary to develop any department or analytical process. He is a champion of the value of developing human capital, which is evident from his sphere of influence throughout the MCA and Small Business Lending industry. His upbeat demeanor and ability to deliver to the bottom line make him an asset to any business.

Steven provided market intelligence, business development support, credit evaluation and business process consulting services to Rapid in 2016 & 2017. Deeply knowledgeable in the MCA space and a self-starter who gets things done. I found Steve to be a pleasure to work with.

Steven is a consummate executive leader who quickly understands a process and works efficiently across teams to exceed goals. Time after time, he illustrates his ability to understand a challenge from a high-level strategy perspective as well as his ability to take a deeper dive into the analysis and quantify the issue at hand. He works tirelessly to improve processes and capitalize on opportunities.
Steven worked with my team several times to quantify opportunities as well as to triangulate business assumptions for forecasting purposes. In each case, he clearly laid out the challenges, helped to create functional frameworks, and provided rationale to clarify strategic decisions. His involvement in these projects made them more robust, quicker, and more easily executed.

In my 3 years at AdvanceMe, Steve managed a team of Underwriters and Contract Administrators and oversaw the day to day operations of approving and declining merchants that had applied for working capital. Steve's leadership style not only helped his own team members improve their due diligence process, but also my process as well by helping me understand what items were most important in his decision-making.
Steve was a valuable coach, and his communication style was very transparent during our working relationship, never hesitating to provide feedback, whether positive or negative. Steve's willingness to adapt to change and prioritization skills were key in what I considered a fast-paced working environment. And as a leader, he always treated his team with respect and empowered them to make their own decisions when the situation called for it, showing confidence in them to make the right call.
