DAN HUNT, AIF®, CRPS®
I graduated from Tulane University with a BA in Economics and a minor in Computer Science in 1984. I started my career in technology development for the oil and gas industry. I helped to develop several companies, the most notable of which was Harmonic Systems, a collaboration of Exxon, MasterCard and Sprint. The company was sold to Alliance Data Systems in 2000. After successful projects including restaurants and my invention of CashPump, a bank ATM system intended to run at the gas pump, I began the design of a financial planning company in 2002, teamed up with Norman Strom in 2004, and Hunt and Strom Financial was born.
In 2005, I learned about a highly rated stock and option trading platform called Thinkorswim (acquired by TD Ameritrade in January 2009) and integrated the solution into our financial practice. The purpose was to bring institutional quality money management to mass affluent clients at a reasonable price. Other advisors wanted the same for their clients, and that need created the formation of Redhawk Wealth Advisors, Inc. in 2008.
I reside in Tulsa, OK with my wife and two dogs. My two sons are grown and live in Colorado. I coached baseball and football for 12 years and served on the East Tonka Little League and Bennett Family Park boards. I also served 10 years as a Captain in the US Army and Reserves on the executive staff of the 486th Civil Affairs Company, 321st Special Operations Forces. I currently serve as a director on the Campbell-Lepley-Hunt Foundation Board of Directors, a charity organization that helps those in need all across the state of Oklahoma.
RICK KEAST, AIF®, MBA
I am responsible for the strategic direction and overall performance of the firm. I also oversee the regulatory and compliance functions as well as the investment committee for the firm. I have over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry and have worked with financial advisors throughout the country to help them build their practices. I have a proven track record in the financial services industry for developing revenue producing relationships and delivering key customer solutions.
I developed the first 401(k) offering with exchange traded funds in 2005 working with Capitol One ShareBuilder. I also served as the lead consultant working with major Fortune 500 firms such as PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Continental Airlines, Merrill Lynch, State Street, CONAGRA, and Textron.
Prior to joining Redhawk, I held various management positions with ExpertPlan, PAi, Merrill Lynch, KPMG Consulting, and William M. Mercer and have a bachelors’ degree from Northern Illinois University and an MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management.
