Kevin Solchenberger joins Sovereign Systems to focus on Enterprise Solutions, Development & Delivery, Capability Building and Emerging Technologies
April 4, 2017 – Sovereign Systems today announced that Kevin Solchenberger joined the company as VP of Enterprise Solutions to lead Sovereign’s professional consulting services group.
As Information Technology becomes increasingly critical to differentiate companies from their competition, businesses are relying on new and more innovative strategies to increase their capabilities and speed to market, while reducing overall costs.
As a technology executive and business leader with over 14 years of experience, Kevin Solchenberger partners with the business in delivering innovative technology solutions that are customer-focused and take organizations to the next level by expanding business capabilities to drive growth, enhance competitive edge, and improve organizational efficiencies.
Kevin has a long history of developing business capabilities, from early consulting roles with Accenture and BearingPoint (formally KPMG Consulting), to industry organizations that include Cox Communications and the InterContinental Hotels Group.
With a focus on the Hybrid Cloud, Kevin draws from his years of Digital, DevOps and Agile experiences to deliver innovative solutions across the enterprise. Kevin focuses on understanding customer needs, and innovative technologies that advance business capabilities.
Prior to Sovereign, Kevin was a technology leader at the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).

In previous roles at IHG, Kevin led the creation and launch of a first-ever eCommerce platform dedicated to the China market. He launched a transformational initiative not only focused on the company’s emerging market, but also enabling the first cloud services (Amazon Web Services) to support a high transactional based eCommerce platform. In addition, the initiative served as a proving ground for the implementation of a globally distributed Agile/SCRUM delivery team.
Before joining IHG, Kevin held consultant roles at Cox Communications, BearingPoint, and Accenture where he led initiatives that supported business process consolidation (ordering, billing, and CRM processes), new methodologies (Balanced Scorecard), and enterprise systems integration.
