Kent Collier (McIntire '03)
Founder & CEO, Reorg

Kent Collier is the Founder and CEO of Reorg, the leading provider of intelligence, data, and analysis for the global credit markets. As CEO, Mr. Collier leads the development and execution of Reorg’s long-term strategy and manages overall company operations and resources.

Mr. Collier founded Reorg in 2012, after experiencing firsthand the opportunity to better democratize information in the world of distressed debt investing, bankruptcy, and restructuring. Specifically, Reorg was originally built as an automated alerting technology for the Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or Pacer, a government website housing case and docket information. This ultimately saved financial professionals thousands of hours spent combing the site. Since then, Reorg has expanded significantly under Mr. Collier’s leadership to a full operation of comprehensive datasets and workflow, along with reporters, analysts, and lawyers who produce real-time intelligence for the global credit markets. In addition, Mr. Collier and Reorg were among the first financial technology companies to adopt and invest in data science and generative AI as part of their product and operational strategy.

Prior to founding Reorg, Mr. Collier was a Research Analyst at several buy-side institutions, including Millennium Partners, Catalyst Investment Management, Assurant Asset Management, and Babson Capital, where he focused on high-yield, distressed debt, and special situations.

Outside of his work with Reorg, Mr. Collier has been a guest lecturer on the credit markets and entrepreneurial finance at several universities, including the University of Virginia, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University. He’s been profiled by Financial Times and Forbes, and has appeared and been quoted by numerous media outlets for his expertise on the leveraged finance and corporate credit markets.

Mr. Collier and his wife, Erin, formed and oversee The Good Words Foundation, which supports a wide variety of nonprofit journalistic organizations around the world. In addition, the Colliers are longtime supporters of Mr. Collier’s alma mater, the University of Virginia. Mr. Collier is also a private investor in several B2B vertical software companies.

Mr. Collier has a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia and resides in Washington, DC, with his family.
