Ron Medved and Gregg Cochlan with The Pacific Institute
Ron Medved joined The Pacific Institute in 1976 and is one of the company’s most respected and long-serving partners.
Ron has decades of experience designing strategies to empower organizations to mobilize the power and creativity of their people. As a project director of The Pacific Institute®, Ron has worked with organizations like NASA; Westinghouse-Hanford; Chicago Title & Trust; Boston Edison; BC Telephone; Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan; Heritage University; Guild Mortgage; and Edoc Systems Group.
Ron served as The Pacific Institute®’s Vice President of Business Development (North America) from 2003-2010, which included overseeing new product development, supporting consultants in the field, and coordination of The Pacific Institute®’s organizational culture practice.
Ron also managed sports projects for The Pacific Institute® featuring championship coaches Pete Carroll (USC); Nick Saban (Alabama); and Mark Shubert (USA Swimming).
Ron’s early business career included work as a stockbroker and as the president of a regional, NASD broker-dealer firm.
Ron is a graduate of the University of Washington, where he was a team captain and Academic All-American football player for the Huskies followed by a five-year professional football career with the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.
Gregg Cochlan has an extensive background in leadership, organizational transformation and performance improvement. Since joining The Pacific Institute® in 1997, he has done a tremendous job of taking organizations forward with a 21st-century mindset resulting in significant performance improvement. Gregg is passionate about the work The Pacific Institute does, and his enthusiasm for making a difference permeates his work with clients.
Since the early 1990s, Gregg Cochlan has worked with leaders and organizations on transformation and growth. He was recently named President and CEO of The Pacific Institute Canada, and he iss responsibility for the company’s business throughout that region. Gregg has focused most of his consultancy on strategic leadership, leadership coaching and organizational culture transformation. He has been a contributor in more that 300 board and executive-management sessions with companies across Canada and the U.S. Gregg considers himself fortunate to have been involved in hundreds of organizational-change initiatives. These projects have ranged from doubling market share of a strategic product in less than eight months, to transforming a near-bankrupt financial organization into a 50-best-managed company. He has helped many companies successfully manage mergers, amalgamations and change initiatives. In a recent project, he contributed to enabling an organization to save $65 million dollars in less than three years.
Gregg Cochlan is an author, speaker, organization-transformation specialist and leadership coach. His first book, Love Leadership, challenged traditional corporate conditioning by positioning love as a more effective, sustainable leadership style. Gregg and The Pacific Institute colleague Ron Medved released a new book, World Peace Really! One Mind @ A Time, in 2011. The book applied 40 years of The Pacific Institute®‘s experience to the goal of peaceful coexistence. Gregg feels his work in organizational and culture transformation has been very rewarding. He is proud to say he has seen many of his clients successfully manage the challenge of change and growth, from mergers to holistic change to process improvement and revenue growth. A very important outcome that Gregg strives to achieve is a multiple ROI for clients. Gregg and his wife Sandra are proudly married for more than 30 years. They have three kids: Katelyn, Avery and Brogen. Bottom line: Gregg measures his success by his client’s actual results.
