Today, we’re excited to share a big step toward our path to rapid global growth with the announcement of our new CFO, Peter Hunter.
Prior to joining Field Effect, Peter was CFO at Fullscript—one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. He also served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and CFO at Privacy Analytics and had lead responsibility for the negotiation and sale of the company to IMS Healthcare in May 2016. In addition, Hunter has worked as a C-level officer, advisor, and consultant to many of Ottawa’s successful technology companies inclusive of Skywave Mobile, Nimcat Networks, and enXc Wireless.
Supporting our next phase of growth
“We’re very excited to welcome Peter to the team,” said our Founder, CEO, and CTO, Matt Holland. “As we enter this next phase of hyper growth, Peter’s experience will be instrumental in helping us prepare for the maturity of a publicly traded company, and ultimately, helping further our mission to make intelligence-grade cyber security accessible to every company in the world.”
Over the past 30 years, Peter has brought an entrepreneurial spirit and professional acumen to the table working with many of Ottawa’s telecom, eCommerce, and SaaS companies. In these roles, his focus has been on finance, legal affairs, regulatory compliance, business development, operations, and mergers and acquisitions.
“My initial plan after leaving Fullscript was to slow down and gain some perspective on what was next in my life… But then I was introduced to Matt and Andrew (Loschmann, Co-Founder and COO) at Field Effect, and I knew right away that I had to jump on the train,” said Hunter. “I truly believe that Field Effect has something special. The business model makes sense, the product-market fit is excellent, and there’s absolutely no one better suited to build a global cyber security company.”
Peter will play a major role in helping to prepare Field Effect for massive international growth and put the company on the map as the leading cyber security company in the world.
