ATLANTA — SoloHealth on Friday named Joe Stephens to the newly created role of director of business planning and analytics. Stephens will focus on organizing business development initiatives, priorities, metrics and efficiencies, as well as helping guide new-business exploration as the company continues its growth.
Stephens will report directly to Stephen Kendig, chief commercial officer and EVP of SoloHealth, effective immediately.
“Joe brings a fresh and unique perspective and expertise to the SoloHealth team as we continue to rapidly scale our platform nationally and explore other strategic opportunities within the health services space,” Kendig said. “His background in sales and analytics, along with his start-up mentality, makes him a strong fit for SoloHealth.”
Prior to SoloHealth, Stephens served as the VP of business process improvement at Transcend Services for a year prior to the acquisition by Nuance Communication in April 2012. Stephens began his career as a sales engineer with Carrier Corporation in Mobile, Alabama, where he worked alongside engineers and commercial contractors in the design and layout of HVAC systems for commercial applications.
Stephens holds undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering and finance from Auburn University and an MBA focused in finance and strategic marketing from Indiana University.
