John Cochran was named senior vice president of business development, Kevin Boyle was named senior vice president, general counsel and secretary; and Karen Bertha was named chief ethics and compliance officer.

Cochran, with more than 25 years experience as a sales executive in the IT and management consulting sector, will lead efforts to grow MCR’s footprint in the global professional services marketplace as the company moves toward its goal of $500 million in annual revenue, the company announcement said.
