Kent first applied principles of organizational change management to treatment of students and civil rights policy in public education. He then worked as an internal consultant at SallieMae in the areas of strategy, human resources and interpersonal and group conflict. As a consultant at Ernst & Young, he created and built the Organizational Change Management practice, including methodology writing, practitioner preparation and support. He has served as a principal of changefirst, a U.K.-based change management firm and lived in England for five years.

An avid traveler, Kent enjoys cultural explorations of the many countries he visits on work assignments.
