Born and raised in the Comox Valley, Steven Cochrane has long standing roots when it comes to his commitment to community involvement. His father George was involved in local government for many years and devoted countless hours and dedication to various service organizations within the Valley. Steven learned at a young age, the value of giving back to the community you live in and the importance of inclusiveness with all stakeholders when making decisions. Volunteering within the local youth sporting community has always been of special interest to him over the past 20+ years and he always strives to create an environment of fair play and excellence while developing future leaders through sport.
Steve is currently the Manager of Information Technology for Vancouver Island InsuranceCentres and has served on its corporate Board of Directors for the last eight years; most recently taking on the Board Chair position. His cumulative knowledge, skills and experience in business, technology, strategy and sound governance for both profit and non-profit organizations are the key assets he brings in assisting any group in achieving their present and future goals.
Steve currently sits on both the Investment and Marketing Committees for the CV Community Foundation Board. He has been married to his wife Andrea for 24 years and has three children who all attend local college and high-schools within the Comox Valley.
