Hunt Midwest Adds New Managers to Support Growth
Kansas City, Mo. – September 6, 2017 – Hunt Midwest has strengthened its management team with the addition of a manager of new business development and a manager of security and safety, President and CEO Ora Reynolds has announced.
Wes Detwiler has joined the Hunt Midwest team as manager of new business development where he will analyze new opportunities, complete financial underwriting, and perform due diligence on potential Hunt Midwest commercial and residential real estate projects. Detwiler has 12 years of commercial real estate finance experience that includes underwriting commercial loans, analyzing property performance, researching macro and micro economic real estate trends, and trading bonds. A former real estate underwriting consultant with Wells Fargo in New York City, Detwiler also has served as senior financial analyst and fund manager for Block Real Estate Services.
“Wes is an outstanding addition to Hunt Midwest’s business development team. His depth of experience will assist Hunt Midwest in identifying new business expansion opportunities and completing the financial analysis, underwriting and due diligence for a variety of real estate verticals,” said Doug Coleman, Hunt Midwest general manager of new business development.
Detwiler holds a Bachelor of Science degree in information systems from the University of Texas at Arlington, as well as an MBA, with an emphasis in finance, from the University of Missouri. He was a captain and four-year varsity baseball letter winner at University of Texas-Arlington and Cowley College.

Jon Moody has joined the Hunt Midwest team as manager of security and safety. With a strong emphasis on the safety of SubTropolis and a keen focus on customer service, Moody is responsible for supervising and coordinating the activities and procedures of the security and safety team. Moody formerly served as chief of security at Midwestern Baptist Seminary where he developed and implemented the school’s new security department. He is a former deputy sheriff and 911 dispatch administrator with the Clay County Sheriff’s Department in Piggott, Arkansas.
“Jon’s leadership experience in both public and private law enforcement makes him a perfect fit to lead our 24×7 SubTropolis security team,” said Mike Bell, Hunt Midwest vice president of commercial development. “Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety and security of our tenants, and Hunt Midwest has utmost confidence in Jon’s ability to lead this effort while providing exceptional customer service.”
