Appointment of Mr Robbie Cooke as Chief Executive Officer
For the past five years, Robbie has held the position of Managing Director and CEO of Tatts Group, a role which concluded upon the successful merger with Tabcorp in December 2017. Prior to that, he served first as COO, and then as Managing Director and CEO, of Wotif.com over a seven-year period. During that time, Wotif.com scaled up significantly, achieved a circa five-fold increase in profits and undertook a successful ASX listing.
With his background and experience in Australian customer-centric and technology-driven businesses, the Board of Tyro considers Robbie the ideal person to lead the company through its next phase of growth and development.
Tyro’s Chairman, Kerry Roxburgh, said:
“After conducting an exhaustive local and international search, the Board is delighted to announce Robbie’s appointment. We believe he possesses all the skills and experience to lead Tyro into a new and ground-breaking chapter.”
On the announcement of his appointment Robbie said:
“I am really looking forward to leading the Tyro team through the next exciting stage of its journey and building on its energetic and innovative spirit. As a business bank providing fair, transparent and smart banking solutions in a truly customer-centric way, we have a real opportunity to build on the successes Tyro has achieved to date.”
