Axios Appoints New Chief Financial Officer

Axios Mobile Assets has announced the addition of Michael Cooke to its management team in the role of Chief Financial Officer. Mr Cooke brings over ten years of experience in a variety of leadership positions in the fields of accounting and financial analysis, and his appointment strengthens the management team as the business shifts into a phase of expansion. He most recently served as Senior Director, Business Planning & Strategy at Achievers Corp., a provider of SaaS-based reward and recognition solutions which was acquired by Blackhawk Network.

Mr Cooke began his career at KPMG before moving to marketing and analytics provider Adenyo Inc. He graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University and is a Chartered Professional Accountant.

Axios also announces that Marc Topacio is transitioning from the role of Chief Financial Officer, a position he held since Axios was founded in December 2009, to become Vice President of Pooling Operations.

“We are excited to welcome Michael to Axios, as he brings finance and operations experience that fits well with where we are going as a company,” said Richard MacDonald, President and CEO of Axios Mobile Assets. “Marc will continue to play an important role for us through his senior position in our pallet pooling division, where he will add further depth to a strong and expanding team. We are very grateful for his tremendous service in the role of Chief Financial Officer and we look forward to continued contributions from Marc in his new role.”

The appointments of Mr Cooke and Mr. Topacio became effective as of April 11, 2016.
