Swanbeck was the one who brought Hunt out of his vacation as he gave the mission briefing details in a modified sunglasses before Hunt chose to accept it.
After Hunt recruited a British professional thief, Nyah Nordoff-Hall, he went to the IMF safe house in Seville, Spain to meet Swanbeck and receive his field assignment. Then, Hunt was instructed by Swanbeck to recover a stolen item (revealed to be a deadly synthetic virus), Chimera, and bring the sample to the IMF, which he did in the end of the film.
