During a successful 15-year banking career, Eric Cook was the “driving force” behind many of his bank’s strategic technology initiatives, taking his community bank online in 1995 as one of the first “hometown” banks in the nation with a presence on the web. He brought customers real-time online banking capability and a variety of other online conveniences. Starting as a teller, when Eric left banking in 2007, he was regional president for a Michigan-based, publicly-traded community bank.

Today Eric owns his own Internet consulting practice, focused on helping community financial institutions better understand and leverage the Internet’s power as a strategic business tool. His hands-on experience is combined with state-of-the-art Internet solutions to help clients achieve success online through creative web development, online marketing, and social media strategies. Eric serves financial consumers nationwide and is a sought-after speaker for social technology and online business topics.
