MCR recently announced that it appointed John Cochran as Senior Vice President, Business Development, Kevin Boyle as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, and Karen Bertha as Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer. With new senior leadership, MCR looks to position the company for growth.
President Vince Kiernan said, “I am extremely happy to welcome John, Kevin, and Karen to the MCR team.”
“These key hires will help us achieve our strategic goals and objectives and position MCR to compete as a leading provider of integrated program management services in the global marketplace. I look forward to working with these talented and experienced professionals. They are outstanding additions to the MCR team, and I am confident that they will assist us in providing outstanding service and results for our customers.”
John Cochran will be leading the charge to grow MCR’s footprint in the global professional services marketplace as the company moves toward its goal of $500 million in annual revenue. With more than 25 years of experience as a sales executive in the information technology and management consulting sector, Cochran has recently served as Senior Vice President of Business Development at NetStar-1, where he was responsible for driving new business growth in the Defense and Civil agency sectors. He has also led business development teams for several major consulting firms, which consistently met or exceeded targets for new sales and new business pipeline growth.
Kevin Boyle, an 18 year veteran in legal and business counsel, will oversee all of MCR’s legal matters and be part of the company’s executive leadership team. Boyle has particular expertise in corporate law, government contracting, litigation, and corporate compliance to emerging growth companies. Previously, Boyle was Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary at Vangent, where he created the company’s first legal department, managed several acquisitions and dispositions, including its 2011 strategic sale to General Dynamics for $960 million. He also successfully resolved several significant regulatory compliance reviews, and led Vangent’s corporate ethics and compliance program to recognition within the government contracting industry.
Karen Bertha comes to MCR with broad-based expertise in ethics and compliance program management, compliance risk assessment, education and training. She will use her expertise in compliance to ensure strict adherence to the highest ethical standards for MCR. As an Ethics and Compliance Manager at The Coca-Cola Company, Bertha had a proven track record of investigating code of conduct violations, resolving issues, and recommending corrective actions for their North American Retail and Marketing Divisions and Africa. Prior to joining The Coca-Cola Company, she developed the first comprehensive compliance and ethics program for all health plans participating in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association’s Federal Employee Program.
