Didier Soumet, president of the LINXIS Group supervisory board, commented on the new roles assigned to Cook: “When planning the succession of LINXIS Group leadership, I considered Tim’s industry experience, as well as his personal and professional skills, and he was the obvious choice to lead our global group. I am very proud that our board confirmed this choice, and that Tim has accepted. He, along with Anne Brifault, our vice-president and CFO, will truly personify LINXIS Group’s strategic ambitions for synergistic growth worldwide.”
