With more than 15 years of experience in large corporations, Craig has an excellent track record having developed and scaled multiple start-up businesses from the software and innovative technology sphere. He also brings a unique blend of technological experience, together with proven architecture and design skills for consumer products, as well as big data solutions and online services to HRBoss.
When asked why he decided to take on his new role as CIO with HRBoss, Cook responded, "Having worked in the Video Game industry for a large portion of my career, I have transitioned with trends from consumer boxed products to online services. It became obvious to me that my expertise and knowledge from large real-time performant systems was highly relevant to other industries too. With first-hand experience developing multiple start-ups in Asia, I wanted to continue working in Asia's start-up scene. I'm thrilled to join Bernie and his team in driving the HRBoss vision."
He added, "The question I get asked most since my appointment is 'how will your years of expertise from Microsoft and online game start-ups fall into place at HRBoss?' Yes... it's a different industry but ultimately, it's still software - simply in a different space and I can add great value here. I am excited to have the challenge of learning the needs of a new industry and bringing expertise from my discipline and practice into the world of HR and Recruitment, working towards new milestones in my passion for innovation and new technology."
