Dan Hunt AIF
Chief Executive Officer
952-835-4295 ext. 7
Mr. Hunt graduated Tulane University with a BA in Economics with a minor in computer science in 1984. Mr. Hunt started his career in technology development for the oil and gas industry. He helped 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 bank ATM systems, Mr. Hunt started 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 Mr. Hunt learned about a highly rated stock and option trading platform called Thinkorswim (acquired by TD Ameritrade in January 2009) and integrated that into the 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. Mr. Hunt resides with his wife and two sons in Minnetonka, MN. He has coached baseball and football for 12 years, and served on the East Tonka Little League and Bennett Family Park boards.

Ms. Rivett began her career in the financial services industry in 2006 as an advisor’s assistant at a major Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (“OSJ”) located in Minneapolis, MN.

She has quickly advanced in the company to Senior Vice President and provides ongoing sales and service support to advisors and works with Redhawk’s providers to offer competitive retirement plan solutions.
