Aerospace, Military and Management Expertise to Supplement Aerospace and Defense Practice

WASHINGTON, D.C--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - With a unique mix of military, information technology and financial management expertise, retired Lieutenant General Jeffrey Sorenson has joined A.T. Kearney, the global management consulting firm, as Vice President and Partner in its Public Sector, Aerospace and Defense (A&D) practice.

"During this time when there's an urgent need to make major defense programs more affordable, Jeff's insights and experience will complement A.T. Kearney's broader commercial expertise across all industries," said Bob Willen, Partner and Leader of the A&D practice. "Jeff is a hands-on manager with a strong strategic vision, bringing decades of critical military leadership in precisely the areas about which our clients are most concerned," Willen added.

Sorenson comes to A.T. Kearney following a 37-year military career, with more than 20 years in senior executive positions in Army financial and program management, including his final assignment as Chief Information Officer for the Department of the Army. He has led diverse organizations ranging in size from 300 to 17,000 personnel, managed the development of complex technologies and delivered on time and within cost systems and products that performed to specification. Jeff's skills include program management, information technology management, financial management, strategic planning, technology innovation and strategic communications. He is based in the Washington, D.C., office.

"I look forward to the opportunity to help accelerate the growth of A.T. Kearney's Public Sector, Aerospace and Defense Practice," said Sorenson. "The nation faces an increasingly difficult budget environment. The federal government and the private sector must together focus on improving the value equation for the military, now and into the future. Leveraging commercial best business practices in everything from manufacturing to cyber will help private sector and military institutions meet today's challenges and be better prepared for whatever the future brings."
