Kurt Cellar - Professional Summary:    

 

Kurt Cellar has produced a successful track record throughout his two decades of consulting and investing.

Beginning in 1993, Kurt Cellar worked as an Associate for LEK/ALCAR, a strategic management consulting firm that is an offshoot of Bain Consulting. There, he gained experience working on a diverse array of assignments. Two years later, Mr. Cellar sharpened his skills at the principal investment firm of Remy Investors and Consultants, Inc. During this time, he helped earn investors a 2,500 percent return through identifying and analyzing four separate acquisitions for a consolidator in the oil and gas services sector. In 1999, Mr. Cellar joined Bay Harbour Management. In 2001 he was promoted to director of research and in 2003 to Partner and Portfolio Manager.

In addition to working with distressed investments, Kurt Cellar also specializes in the rejuvenation of distressed companies.
