Michael Cocchiola, Executive Committee, Chairman


I am a former senior executive in the Department of Defense providing expertise in strategic and organizational planning to the local Democratic Party. I’ve directed organizations from 100 to 23,000 employees. I entered the private sector after retirement from the Department of Defense and served in executive positions with major management consulting firms. I consulted with public and private organizations to help them develop strategic and operational plans, organize to achieve those plans, create brand images and market their capabilities.

I’ve also served in the following ways:

  • Twice commodore of the Flagler Beach Yacht Club
  • Two-time president of the Flagler County Corvette Club and current president of the Flagler Bulls Investment Club. Built each club into the most successful of its kind in Flagler County.
  • Worked on the two Obama campaigns and the Clinton campaign as well as supporting local democratic candidates.
