The genesis of HMG Strategy 

With over 25 years of hands-on IT experience, Hunter Muller founded HMG Strategy. Hunter started his career as an IT consultant to companies such as Gartner, IBM, and Unilever. From his broad experience base, Hunter knows the opportunities where CIOs can transform a company and drive business value. He has also seen lost opportunities for IT leaders who did not continue to grow, develop, and adopt new technologies. Given this insight, Hunter launched HMG Strategy to meet the 360 degrees of the IT Leader. HMG provides the foremost in networking, thought leadership, innovation, and transformation to drive the success and career ascent of the IT leader.
