M. T. (“Terry”)
Cooke is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of
GC3 Strategy LLC. He started GC3 to advance an extraordinary
global economic opportunity: to catalyze in U.S. and European
businesses and organizations the know how to work more effectively
and strategically with emerging Asian economies. During Terry’s
15 year career with the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service, he
held progressively more responsible positions at the U.S. Missions
in Asia (Taipei, Tokyo, Shanghai) and Europe (Berlin) acting
as the U.S. Government’s senior commercial representative
in Taiwan and Berlin. These responsibilities enabled Terry
to build strong commercial relationships that are now solidified
to direct his company’s network plant and initiatives.
His consensus building skills, capacity for cross-cultural
bridge building, mastery of languages and cultural norms, and
his personal dedication to the cause of win-win industrial
strategies between east and west, impart Terry as the leader
to connect the U.S.A. and Europe with the large, fast paced
Asian economies that make the new single global economy a reality.
