Mark Wilson - Chief Executive Officer
As CEO, I work with the Cochrane Governing Board (formerly the Steering Group) in developing the organization’s strategic goals and objectives contained in our Strategy to 2020. I am responsible for the effective running of Cochrane so that the organization achieves these goals and objectives, leading a Central Executive Team and our network of nearly 120 Cochrane Groups around the world.
Lucie Binder - Senior Advisor to the CEO
My job is to support the CEO in running the business. This gives me a varied portfolio, but principally I am responsible for driving the implementation of the Strategy to 2020, and working with the Editorial Unit to manage the contractual and operational requirements of the publishing partnership with Wiley. I also work closely with the other members of the Senior Management Team to advise and facilitate communication on strategic and business matters with the Central Executive team and the organisation more widely.
Kathelene Weiss - Development Co-ordinator
I am a fundraising professional with more than 15 years expertise in both the UK and USA in generating revenue and developing new income sources. I am an articulate and persuasive relationship and stakeholder manager who has excelled at building sustainable partnerships between businesses, the education sector, government, private individuals and the cultural and charitable sectors. I bring with me over 10 years in senior roles and a true passion for the fundraising profession. Recent roles have included Director of Development for COHRED, a Geneva based NGO that works to build research capacity in low and middle income countries, and Director of Oxford Inspires, the cultural development agency in Oxfordshire, UK.
Veronica Bonfigli - Governance and Admin Support Officer
I am responsible for providing administrative and operational support to Cochrane’s Governing Board and Council. I provide support to the Senior Advisor to the CEO on governance and policy improvement projects, led by the Chief Executive Officer and I coordinate the establishment and de-registration of Cochrane’s Groups.
Sylvia de Haan – Senior Advisor (Partnerships, External Affairs & Fundraising)
My work with Cochrane evolves around developing and maintaining strategic external partnerships, support to organizational level fundraising, as well as other external affairs (such as developing Cochrane responses to debates critical to Cochrane, and ensuring representation at key events). I also support the implementation of Cochrane’s knowledge translation (KT) strategy – mainly focusing on the prioritization & co-production and the exchange themes of the strategy. Through the KT part of my work I aim to facilitate partnership development and prioritization at Cochrane Group level – aiming to support Groups in becoming responsive to external partner needs. I have a background in health science, public health and international health, and spend the largest part of my career on work with low and middle income countries in strengthening their health research systems.
