David Cook, President & CEO:
Entrepreneur, Executor, Pioneer
Keenly attentive, dynamic, determined and circumspect, David has 25 years concentrated success in building innovative businesses in the information services and credentialing markets. Dave's tenure at Equifax - which became Choicepoint - was dedicated to leading his company's strategy in the emerging credentialing and background screening market which grew into the dominant credential business to the Fortune 1000 with revenues approaching $200 million.
Grasping the knowledge that a post-9/11 American world would be vastly different, David helped pioneer a Medical Credentialing Business as the first of its kind focused on credentialing as a means to address Homeland Security risks. This course laser-focused the path of his career dedication. Under his direction and leadership, David's team created credentialing procedures and technology adopted by the US Department of Defense to ensure military personnel "readiness" prior to deployment to the Middle East. The deft technology and quick-to-mobilize procedures were rapidly adopted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and David, his team and his technology again rapidly responded to the needs of Homeland Security; this time as the emergency response service attending to the need of credentialing US Postal workers in the midst of the 2001 Anthrax Post Office scare. Notivus credentialing and compliance technology is the ever-evolving result of decades of knowledge learned serving this unique purpose.
David strategizes, builds effective management teams, deploys market strategies and delivers value to customers & investors.
