Still Cooking- Even In Florida

Posted By on Mon, May 15, 2006 at 4:00 AM

If this guy still lived in Memphis, we would have put him in the annual “Who’s Who” listing of our sister publication, Memphis magazine, years ago.

This week, Mark Cook, now living in Palm Beach, will receive the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Business Leader of the Year Award. Cook is president of Royal Palm Management, which includes a glitzy hotel and several high-profile businesses in Florida, and is active in more than half a dozen charities in the area, among his accomplishments.

And if that last name sounds familiar, it should. He is the son of prominent Memphis businessman Edward R. “Ned” Cook, whose name just happens to be the “Cook” part of the Memphis Cook Convention Center.

You can read all about the accomplishments of his son here.
