Director, Investor Relations and Capital Markets, Kite Realty Group
Matt Hunt started with Kite Realty Group as an intern after his junior year of college and was offered a job as an analyst at the end of the internship. After working as an analyst for a few years, he moved into investor relations. Since then, the company has more than doubled in size, and “we continue to tell our story and believe we offer a compelling narrative and investment opportunity,” Hunt says. His responsibilities are to communicate the company’s strategy, performance, value and other relevant information to all of Kite Realty’s stakeholders.
