Cook has almost 20 years of global experience working with Fortune 500 companies in healthcare, financial services, telecommunications and retail to develop and improve operations of customer service centers.
A newly created company in 2011, CallSocket recently acquired the historic Oakland Tribune Tower which will serve as its headquarters and will be where it plans to create hundreds of new jobs. CallSocket's agents respond to customer service opportunities over not just the traditional phone call but also through e-mail, SMS, instant chat, and social networks.
"I’m thrilled to be a part of this new generation of contact centers,” said Cook. "CallSocket is the contact center of the future. Today’s customer talks about and interacts with your brand over many different channels - phone, email, SMS, mobile, instant chat, and social networks - and each impression counts," said Cook.
Previously, she was an executive with Seattle-based Varolii, a SaaS (News - Alert) company specializing in customer interaction management software.

Allan Young, founder of CallSocket, added, "She's built a career out of empowering customers. CallSocket is a brave new company looking for courageous and talented individuals who are committed to customer service because it matters."
Cook continued, “With the emergence of mobility and social media as the way to reach consumers, companies have an opportunity to provide a richer and more complete customer experience across the entire customer life-cycle.”
