    About

    Christopher Cook is a highly distinguished lawyer with 25 years of experience in the private sector and government in the United States. Prior to making his move in-house in 2014, Cook worked as a partner at Jones Day in Chicago and Washington, D.C. for over 16 years. Over the last two and a half years, Cook has overseen the Central American legal function of Walmart, the largest retail business in Central America with 33,000 employees and 700 stores spread across Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras. In charge of a team of 40, Cook is praised by sources for his exceptional leadership skills and impeccable track record of overseeing strategic litigation. The company has ambitious plans to expand in Central America and Mexico, planning to invest nearly $1.5bn across several countries and adding over 400 stores. This expansion would offer a boost to the regional economy, and could potentially add 25,000 jobs.
