Chicago, 9 February 2017: Hunden Strategic Partners (HSP), a leading destination real estate advisory firm, continues to grow its practice with the addition of David Stone as Vice President. David joins HSP’s team with nearly 20 years of consulting experience, including ten years as Principal at AECOM Economics in Chicago.

David will manage and direct the execution of HSP projects and represent the firm on a number of fronts. His consulting work is focused on the planning of sports, entertainment, and other public-assembly facilities and events for clients including public agencies, private developers, financial institutions, and colleges and universities. David’s project experience totals more than 125 projects, including the recent expansion of Lambeau Field and the economic impacts of the stadium and Green Bay Packers, the feasibility study for DePaul University’s new Wintrust Arena in Chicago, the feasibility and economic impact studies for Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center, a masterplan for Honolulu’s Blaisdell Center complex, an analysis of the live music industry in Chicago, and business and operational planning for the University of Alaska’s Alaska Airlines Center. He has also worked on a number of amphitheaters, convention centers and other transformative public-private projects.

Mr. Stone’s arrival at HSP is a reunion of sorts, as Mr. Hunden and Mr. Stone previously consulted together from 2000 – 2004 at a prior firm in Chicago. “David’s arrival on our team is extremely exciting and will continue HSP’s robust growth trajectory, while providing our clients the continued excellent service and advisory that they have come to expect.”

David holds an MBA in Finance, Economics, and Strategic Decision Making from Loyola University Chicago, where he has served as an adjunct professor of Sports Finance, and a BS degree in accounting from Indiana University. He is also a commissioner of Chicago’s Old Town Special Service Area and the author of “Chicago’s Classical Architecture: The Legacy of the White City” and “Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair.”
