At the Endowment, he served as director of health care and as executive vice president prior to becoming president in 2005.
“Dr. Cochrane is an experienced leader in philanthropy and nonprofits who will provide wide and broad-ranging council to our work and the work of our partners,” said Steve Moore, executive director at the Murdock Trust.
Cochrane brings leadership and knowledge of health care, one of the areas served by the Murdock Trust. He also serves on the board of the Council of Foundations, the Kate B. Reynolds Trust and as former board chair of Grantmakers in Health. He has been an active leader in numerous county, state and national organizations.
