Alcoa BCS is committed to providing a broad range of products, services
and support for architects. The company works to stay ahead of
architectural industry trends by continuously gathering feedback,
attending key industry conferences and participating in organizations in
order to remain receptive to architects’ needs. As architectural manager, Hunter will spearhead many of these initiatives.
 
Hunter’s career with Alcoa began in 1983 as a sales trainee for Kawneer
for the Southern region working in the Jonesboro, Ga., manufacturing
facility. From 1984 through 2001, he held various sales positions and
was responsible for architectural promotion and customer sales in the
Southern region. In 2001, Hunter joined Kawneer’s inaugural architectural services team where he was responsible for providing
architects with product application and technical assistance. He made
the leap into product management in 2003 where he first worked as the product team leader for hurricane-resistant products, later shifting to product manager for protective glazing products, and most recently, product manager for storefronts, entrances and framing. During his tenure in this
role, Hunter successfully launched seven new products and released major
enhancements for four product lines.
 
Hunter is active in two major industry organizations: the American
Architectural Manufacturers Association
and the American Standard for
Testing of Materials
. He currently serves as co-chair of the AAMA’s storefront manual task group and the BIM task group. Hunter holds a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering from Southern Polytechnic
State Institute and will receive his MBA from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business in
August.
