Ian Hunter – Grilling the CEO

Season 1, Ep. 98

If you had the chance to grill the CEO, what questions would you ask? Ian Hunter is Founder and Managing Partner at Hunter Value Capital. Ian meets with 50-100 CEOs each year in US tech, software, crypto, healthcare and consumer products sectors to evaluate their investment potential for Hunter Value Capital's micro-cap strategy.


“It's easy to hone in on companies with good cultures when you see that one CEO who is willing to admit that things have not gone well. You see that in great athletic coaches that are very frank about where the team is not doing well.”
