MCR Adds Former Netstar, Vangent Executives to Leadership Team

MCR made three executive appointments as part of company plans to grow and achieve $500 million in annual revenue, the company announced Monday.

The McLean, Va.-based integrated program management service provider appointed John Cochran to serve as senior vice president of business development.

The 25 year information technology and management consulting sales veteran previously held the same position at Netstar-1 and ran federal business development at IBM, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and KPMG.

Kevin Boyle will serve as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, positions he previously held at Vangent prior to that company’s strategic $960 million sale to General Dynamics in 2011.

During his tenure with Vangent, he created the company’s first legal department, managed several acquisitions and dispositions, including the sale to General Dynamics.

The 18-year legal veteran was previously assistant general counsel for General Dynamics’ information technology business unit, joining GDIT after it acquired Anteon International Corp for $2.2 billion in 2005.

Karen Bertha, formerly an ethics and compliance manager at The Coca-Cola Company, joined MCR as chief ethics and compliance manager.

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.
