KEVIN P. STEVENSON PRESIDENT, CEO AND CO-FOUNDER, PRA GROUP INC., NORFOLK


Stevenson helped start the 25-year-old debt-purchasing company and has served in a number of roles, becoming president and CEO in 2017. It earned $1.1 billion last year, up from 2019’s $1 billion in total revenue. A former controller with Household

Last year, PRA opened a call center in Danville, and it has offices in North and South America, Europe and Brisbane, Australia. It employs 4,000 people world- wide, with 1,600 based in Virginia.


Stevenson studied accounting at The


Ohio State University and has volunteered his time with the Greater Norfolk Corp. and Equi-Kids, an organization that provides therapeutic horseback riding.

BEST ADVICE FOR OTHERS: Never stray from your values/principles. You can add value just by listening and asking questions.


FIRST JOB: Retail sales


PERSON I ADMIRE: My husband, Doug. He is an amazing husband and father and is a true example of someone who sees the good in others. He encourages and supports — showing confidence in others when they may not be sure what they could accomplish. He models ethical values like no one I have seen and sets an example for others to strive to achieve. He is the voice of reason in most any situation, and I admire his strong character.

He also led the compa- ny’s international operations in London for two years before returning to Richmond in 2005. Whitt became

JAFFRAY WOODRIFF CO-FOUNDER AND CEO, QUANTITATIVE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT LLC, CHARLOTTESVILLE


Woodriff said he first became interested in data science as a child, describing a game he played then. “I would obsessively roll a pair of dice to see seven win, and six and eight duke it out,” the U.Va. alum said in his bio for the University of Virginia’s School of Data Science, which he and his wife, Merrill, who’s also a U.Va. grad, were instrumental in founding. In 2003, Woodriff parlayed that obsession into


creating his $3 billion hedge fund, which uses data science to manage investments. Woodriff has supported dozens of startup companies. Before founding QIM, he was a director at Société Générale, a French multinational investment bank. The Woodriffs set up the private family foundation Quantitative Foundation that makes philanthropic giſts, including the largest private giſt in U.Va.’s history. In 2019 they pledged $120 million to build on U.Va.’s Data Science Institute, which became the School of Data Science last year. A native of Charlottesville, Woodriff is also behind the Woodriff Center of


Developing Entrepreneurs (CODE) building, a 170,000-square-foot space for early-stage tech startups, coworking and other businesses, on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall. It’s expected to be completed this year.
