As a vital member of the senior leadership team, he played a critical role in taking the company public.
Prior to HeartBeam, Hunt held multiple leadership positions at organizations such as the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), Cryterion Medical and Cameron Health. In addition, he served as president and CEO of Bardy Diagnostics, whose novel ECG monitoring system achieved U.S. and European approval under his leadership.

"Having an executive of Jon's caliber and experience is key to achieving our goal of becoming the leader in remote cardiac monitoring in the U.S. market. Jon brings extensive experience in the CRM/EP market and a proven track record of scaling startup companies and building commercial teams. We look forward to his guidance and expertise as we continue to build on our successes and provide healthcare professionals nationwide with more effective solutions for managing heart disease," said Dr. Arnaud Rosier, electrophysiologist, CEO and co-founder of Implicity.
