Prior to founding American Innovative, Hocherman was the VP Engineering at Syncline, Inc., a Boston-based firm specializing in web-based GIS (Geographic Information Systems) solutions. A member of the management team, he was principally in charge of the company's engineering department. In addition Hocherman served as the primary client engagement manager for most of the large-scale project work completed at the firm. Before Syncline, Hocherman spent several years as part of Accenture's (formerly Andersen Consulting) Internet Center of Excellence in Boston. The Internet Center (or ICE) was part of a then-fledgling network of niche development arms within Andersen Consulting responsible for the very first Internet technology projects procured by the global firm. At the ICE center Hocherman was responsible for the architecture and development of large-scale, Java-based enterprise internet projects.
