Executive VP Cochran to retire

Executive Vice Chancellor Jerome Cochran plans to retire Dec. 31.

Cochran has been executive vice chancellor since August 1995, responsible for all of the University’s nonacademic business functions. He also was Pitt’s general counsel, 2004-13.

In announcing Cochran’s decision to retire, Chancellor Patrick Gallagher thanked him for his extensive service to the University. “His business acumen and commitment to providing the highest-quality support to the mission of the University has significantly contributed to the success that Pitt has enjoyed over the nearly past two decades,” Gallagher said.

Arthur Ramicone, chief financial officer, will take on the additional duties of interim executive vice chancellor, including responsibility for Auxiliaries, Business, Facilities Management, Human Resources, Public Safety and Emergency Management.

Chancellor Emeritus Mark A. Nordenberg pays tribute to Cochran in the Letters column, this issue 2.
