General BackgroundDr. Hunter has had a very diverse career as a health/fitness professional. During his tenure as Manager of Wellness Services (2007-2016), Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) was a four-peat Platinum Well Workplace Award recipient through WELCOA. An independent analysis of BCBSNE's wellness program by outside health promotion experts revealed an ROI of $2.67 to $1. His department also consulted with BCBSNE’s employer groups and assisted them in developing data-driven, results-oriented wellness programs. This consultative approach was very effective and helped more than 300 Nebraska-based worksites, ranging in size from 10-40,000+ employees, to offer cost-efficient, evidence-based wellness solutions to their employees.
From 1987-1989, he coordinated the state of Nebraska’s wellness program for 16,000+ employees. And, from 1980-1987, he was Director of Corporate Fitness at InterNorth, Inc., and managed its 28,000 sq. ft., Omaha-based exercise facility for 2000+ employees, their families, and retirees.
