Ed Cooke joins Toolbox to lead global expansion plans


Toolbox Group has announced the hire of former Revo CEO Ed Cooke as its new global growth director.


Cooke, who takes up the newly created role with the company on 5 May 2020, has been brought in specifically to lead the continued strategic expansion of the technology and marketing innovation company.

Cooke’s appointment also includes a seat on the Toolbox Group Board.

Cooke, who has been with Revo for 11 years, four of which were as CEO, announced his departure from the retail property and placemaking champion in August 2019.

Toolbox’s founder and CEO Michelle Buxton commented, ‘Ed brings to Toolbox Group and the Global Growth Director role a razor-sharp focus and insight into the real estate industry. He is a change agent. During his time with Revo and previous key industry positions, he has spearheaded positive developments to the retail and property community which are not only forward-thinking but will continue to have a beneficial impact for years to come.’

He added: ‘As global PropTech leaders in the mixed-use real estate and integrator technology sector, Mallcomm saw significant territory expansion last year which will continue into 2020 and beyond with the focus heavily on the Americas, CEE and Asia.’
