Cooke was formerly Group Sales Director for Chubb Fire & Security Group and has joined Aspire Software to head up its expanding Security portfolio.
“I’m thrilled to be at the helm of Bold and Innovative,” said Cooke. “I look forward to playing a pivotal role in the expansion and evolution of the portfolio.”
Patrick Cusk, the CEO of the Aphinity Portfolio within Aspire Software, added, “Marc brings a deep understanding of alarm monitoring technology and the near-term technology opportunities in the Security market.
