LUNCH WITH MALEY: Peter Hunt's social vision

The Caliburn co-founder discusses the social challenges of our times, investment banking's distorted focus on short-term profits and how government red tape is stifling the not-for-profit sector.

For the past few decades, Peter Hunt has been a familiar presence in the country’s top boardrooms. He was the person that former AMP boss Andrew Mohl turned to when he wanted to spin off the insurance and fund management group’s troubled UK businesses. He was at the side of Westpac boss, Gail Kelly, when she launched her audacious $18 billion takeover bid for St George Bank in 2008, and he advised the federal government on its $24 billion sell-down of Telstra.

But even while he was working 12-hour-plus days advising the titans of the corporate world, Hunt found himself increasingly preoccupied with the country’s major social problems.
