About Carl Cook
The son of William “Bill” and Gayle Cook, Carl Cook is an American businessman who has a net worth of $9.76 billion in July 2017, according to Bloomberg. He took over as the CEO of the Cook Group, a medical device company, upon the death of his father in 2011. It specializes in stents and catheters that contain pre-injected antibiotics and has estimated revenues at $12 billion.
Carl earned his MBA from the University of Iowa. After that, he spent a year setting up the computers of the company in France and Germany before moving to the group’s pacemaker company in Leechburg, PA and the plant in Winston-Salem. He remained dedicated in keeping the company privately-owned. Along with his parents, he was part of the $500 million of their two locations in Indiana, the luxury French Lick Resort and West Baden Springs Hotel between 1996 and 2007. The family has also added a casino and a Pete Dye-designed PGA golf course, which will host the 2015 PGA Senior Championship.
