Michael Hunter Joins Epiq as AACER Vice President

Advancing the industry’s most complete, accurate, and timely bankruptcy dataset, housing millions of cases

NEW YORK – Jan. 2, 2024 — Epiq announced today Michael Hunter has joined as Vice President of Sales and Business Development of Epiq AACER, the leading provider of bankruptcy filing data, technology, and services for companies operating in the business of bankruptcy.

Epiq AACER is a dynamic bankruptcy information services platform that reduces risk and improves outcomes through the bankruptcy lifecycle. Epiq AACER’s bankruptcy analytics subscription service provides on-demand access to the industry’s most complete, accurate, and timely bankruptcy dataset, housing millions of cases, including every electronically filed bankruptcy case. The volume grows daily as it sweeps the courts for new filings and updates across all secured and unsecured asset types. 

Hunter brings more than 20 years of experience in mortgage origination, servicing, technology, and product domains. Most recently, Hunter was the Chief Revenue Officer of LCI Bankruptcy Solutions where he helped manage the company through three ownership groups. Prior, Hunter spent 11 years at ICE Technologies (fka Black Knight) in sales and account management within its Servicing Technologies division focused on management of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Default Attorneys, and other technology partners in the industry.  

“Michael’s proven success in technology sales and account management, strong relationship and partnership approach, and solid track record of growth aligns with AACER’s mission,” said Brad Tuttle, Senior Managing Director of Epiq’s Corporate Restructuring Group and AACER. “He is elevating Epiq AACER to be the trusted partner to transform the business of bankruptcy through our superior data, advanced technology, and exceptional services.”

AACER APIs allow seamless retrieval and transmission of real-time bankruptcy case information directly into a client’s system of record. Clients leverage a wide variety of scrub services to identify bankruptcies within a newly acquired or planned loan portfolio acquisition, data audits, true ups, remediations, and more. 

“We are building upon the success of Epiq AACER’s 50-year reputation as the industry leader in bankruptcy data, technology, and services,” Hunter said. “Epiq AACER’s products help to make more informed decisions, validate accuracy, and identify compliance or quality control issues. The industry needs more reliable and efficient technologies to streamline operations, reduce costs, and help reduce risk.”

At the beginning of each month, Epiq AACER partners with the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) to release monthly press releases that package the most current bankruptcy filing data for analysts, researchers, and members of the news media. Each release details total bankruptcy filings, including overall commercial, chapter 11, small business, and individual – and their movement over time. The teams evaluate government policies, price inflation, and lending rates to understand and forecast economic declines and rebounds.

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, the Epiq and ABI teams will present a free webinar, 2023 Filing Trends and What To Expect in the Year Ahead, to examine the consumer and business filing trends that emerged in 2023. Bankruptcy experts will discuss how 2023’s filings compare among different stakeholders and regions of the U.S. and consider whether these trends will continue into 2024.
