Hunter grew up in and around the Crowd Management industry and always dreamed of someday having the opportunity to work for S.A.F.E. Management. He still recalls heading to Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium on Saturday mornings with his dad, Jim McIntyre, to conduct interviews. Almost 20 years later that dream came true.
Hunter is a graduate of Loyola Blakefield high school and Salisbury University. At Salisbury, Hunter played varsity baseball and was extremely active in the Purdue School of Business. In his junior year, Hunter won the Bernstein Achievement Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship. He and his partners used the winnings to start Knollege, LLC, an educational networking website. He graduated from Salisbury with a B.A. in Business Management and minors in Accounting and Information Systems.
After graduating from Salisbury, Hunter immediately entered Law School at the University of Baltimore where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with an impressive rank of 12th of 309 and as a member of the Heuisler Honor Society. Hunter is a member of the Maryland Bar.
While studying the law, Hunter worked under famed sports agent and negotiations expert, Ronald M. Shapiro. During that time, Hunter assisted Ron in the negotiation of a University’s move to a major sports conference, multiple professional Baseball and Basketball contracts, business deals, and assisted in writing and editing Ron’s fourth book, Perfecting Your Pitch: How to Succeed in Business and In Life by Finding Words that Work. Ron wrote in his acknowledgements that “[w]hen I wondered whether we had the capability to assemble and organize material, verify statements, or just plain meet deadlines, I turned to Hunter. He unflinchingly took on the task, spent untold hours, and cleared my route to the goal line.” Hunter has held numerous positions at S.A.F.E. Management, including while in high school and college, as an Usher and Ticket Taker. Over his career, Hunter has held other positions within S.A.F.E.’s Baltimore Branch Office. These have included Office Manager, Assistant Director of Operations and Managing Director. In 2019, Hunter was promoted to Vice President and General Counsel. In that role, Hunter was responsible for all legal aspects of S.A.F.E.’s business entities. In 2023, Hunter’s Dad, Jim McIntyre, stepped down after nearly 30 years as CEO of S.A.F.E. Management. Hunter was named President & CEO and is now responsible for all aspects of S.A.F.E.’s operations.
In his free time Hunter is extremely active in the community. He serves on the Board of Directors and Chairman of the Nominating Committee of The Family Tree, Maryland’s leading non-profit dedicated to providing families with proven solutions to child abuse and neglect; he is a former member of the ethics committee of Kennedy Krieger Institute (Hospital) where he served on the membership committee; and has previously served on the Fire House Renovation Project, led by Ronald M. Shapiro, dedicated to revitalizing Baltimore’s fire houses. Hunter lives in Timonium, Maryland with his wife and three daughters.
