Management Team

Paul Hunter - President & CEO

A Tampa businessman for 30 years, Mr. Hunter is president of Quikstone Capital Solutions. He co-founded Sterling Payment Technologies in 2000; the business now processes for thousands of merchants nationwide.

Recognizing that many of Sterling Payment’s clients were underserved by traditional lenders, Mr. Hunter founded Sterling Funding in 2005 to provide merchant cash advances. Sterling Funding became Quikstone Capital Solutions in 2017. Mr. Hunter has raised more than $300 million in capital for merchants.

Mr. Hunter started his finance career as a stockbroker with Smith Barney. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to start a full service car wash chain in the Tampa Bay area. In two short years, he grew this business to four locations with over 170 employees. The business thrived under his leadership for 14 years. In 1994, Mr. Hunter organized an investor partnership that purchased a Tampa manufacturer of grocery store fixtures and food service equipment. Mr. Hunter is a shareholder and continues to serve as a board member and advisor.

Mr. Hunter has raised more than $30 million in capital debt and equity for these businesses. He holds a bachelor’s in business administration in finance from the University of Georgia and a master’s in business administration from Georgia State University.
