He also serves as executive director and treasurer of the Medical Center Fund of Cincinnati, which invests the reserves for the UC Physicians practices.
Prior to those appointments he served in a variety of administrative leadership roles with clinical departments at the College of Medicine, including the departments of pathology, surgery, neurology and family medicine, and at Alliance Primary Care.
A native of Cincinnati, Gillespie is a graduate of Denison University, Granville, and holds a master’s degree in community planning from the University of Cincinnati.
