In various roles, Cook has been responsible for developing business performance strategies, while ensuring alignment of both resources and company priorities.

“I’m thrilled to join Ruckus,” Cook adds. “The company has such a unique focus and culture committed to innovation.

“For me, it’s important to be at a company that develops products that really address the core business issues in the market and deliver innovative solutions.

“In my mind, Ruckus leads that charge in the wireless industry with its Smart Wi-Fi solutions and I look forward to getting involved in driving the company’s next phase of growth in APAC.”
