Jeremy Hunter is the great-grandson of a sumo wrestler as well as Assistant Professor of Practice at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management.

He created and teaches The Executive Mind, a decade-old series of challenging and transformative executive education courses dedicated to Drucker’s assertion that “You cannot manage other people unless you manage yourself first.” Hunter’s courses challenge leaders to relentlessly transform themselves to face the demands of complex and volatile world. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Mindful, the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition.

His work is informed by the experience of living day-to-day for 17 years with a potentially terminal illness, and when faced with the need for life-saving surgery having more than a dozen former students come forward as organ donors.

Dr. Hunter received his Ph.D. from University of Chicago, an M.P.P. from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Wittenberg University.

He and his wife dutifully serve two housecats who live in Los Angeles.
