Holly B. Hunt was raised in a rural North Georgia town, Elberton, Georgia, which is also known as “The Granite Capital of the World.” The oldest of four children, she felt a natural inclination to take on the role of leader and caretaker from a young age. A self-proclaimed serial entrepreneur, Holly has always looked for ways to grow and develop outside of her current circumstances.
She has 15 years of experience in telecommunication sales, sales management & operations, and more recently in sales strategy and programs for Comcast Business. Holly joined Comcast in 2012, and currently serves as the Director of National Partner Programs for the Indirect Sales Channel for Comcast Business. She graduated Cum Laude from the University of Georgia where she obtained two degrees, a Bachelor of Journalism in Public Relations and a Bachelor of Science in Education in Sports Studies.
Prior to Comcast, Holly spent time in sales roles at Cingular Wireless, AT&T, Wholesale Carrier Services, and Windstream. She has also launched and operated a few small businesses including Athena Network Solutions, Your 180 Fitness, Hollywood’s Couture, and most recently her own personal brand, Holly B. Hunt.
She has served on the board of the Comcast Women’s Network ERG at HQ in the role of National Liaison for the past 2 years, and recently took on the Co-lead position. Holly is an active member of the Junior League and has held leadership roles in the Miami, Atlanta, and Philadelphia chapters. She is currently serving as Chair for All Member Leadership Training in the Junior League of Miami. She also volunteers with Back on My Feet Fort Lauderdale as a Career Coach and has spent time with other non-profits over the years.
Holly is passionate about motivating and inspiring others to achieve their full potential and make the most out of life. She dedicates time mentoring several women and men at Comcast as they navigate their career journeys. She frequently speaks with groups and organizations on topics such as building their brand, goal setting, and finding their purpose.
As we found ourselves forced into a challenging situation with quarantine due to COVID, Holly decided to be pro-active in keeping her co-workers and friends motivated and in a positive mindset. She launched a “Mindfulness with Holly” call series for Comcast employees to get a dose of motivation and inspiration while working from home. She also launched her own blog and brand, Holly B. Hunt, where she blogs about topics such as Building Resilience, Gratitude, Finding Focus, and Creating Balance. You can follow her on her journey at www.hollybhunt.com
