Tim Cook joins MyWave board

Tim Cook joins MyWave board


Auckland, 5 May 2014. Personal cloud software startup MyWave has appointed Collins Asset Management managing director Tim Cook to the position of non-executive director, following the successful completion of a first round private capital raising.

MyWave CEO Geraldine McBride says Tim Cook is the second independent director appointment to the MyWave board, joining former Xero founder chairman Phil Norman who was appointed as MyWave board chairman earlier this year.

“Tim, along with interests associated with Collins Asset Management, was the largest investor in our recent capital round,” Geraldine McBride said. “We are very pleased to have his involvement as an investor and particularly as a director. His experience working with young companies through the private capital raising and public listing process will be invaluable.”

Tim Cook is a director of a number of companies within and outside of Collins Group, of which Collins Asset Management is a member. These include Cook Executive Recruitment, NZX-listed Veritas Investments (owner of The Mad Butcher), Team McMillan BMW Limited, Team McMillan MINI Limited and Rolls Royce. He is also chairman of Safer Sleep NZ and USA, chairman of The Auckland Heart Group, NZ’s largest private cardiology practice, and chairman of VnC Cocktails Limited.

From 2006 to 2011 he was a director of NZX-listed Charlie’s Group Limited, representing Collins Asset Management, which was the cornerstone shareholder at 19.69%. He was closely involved with the sale of Charlie’s Group to Asahi Group for $129 million in 2011.

“MyWave is a great investment opportunity. It’s not often you get the right technology, with the right people at the right time, Tim Cook said. “I’m looking forward to the journey.”
