As part of a planned leadership transition, Noom’s co-Founder Saeju Jeong, who served as CEO for 16 years, will continue with the company as Executive Chairman of the Board.
Cook has extensive strategic and executive experience.
During his tenure as co-founder and CEO of The Meet Group, Cook took the company public on the NASDAQ exchange and led it until its sale in September 2020.
Cook presided over eight consecutive years of revenue growth, while also acquiring and successfully integrating four social dating companies and building a significant enterprise creator economy platform.
“Having spent the last 18 years driving innovation to promote social connection and well-being, I’m thrilled to bring that spirit of transformative innovation to additional health and wellness dimensions.
“I believe Noom can build on its strong and compelling foundation to reach everyone everywhere on their wellness journey and deepen the sustained, positive impact we have on the lives of our customers.
“I’m looking forward to partnering with Noom’s co-founders, Board, and talented team to create the next chapter of Noom’s growth.”
