Valpak Executive Nancy Cook Named to United Way Suncoast Area Board

(ST. PETERSBURG, FL – April 16, 2015) — Nancy Cook, senior vice president of digital business solutions at Valpak, has been named as a new member of the Tampa Bay area board of directors for United Way Suncoast. United Way Suncoast recently announced its 2015 board of directors along with its boards for Tampa Bay and Sarasota.

“Having some of the community’s most respected and accomplished leaders pooling their energy, passions and knowledge together is, and always has been, vital to our success as an organization,” said Suzanne McCormick, President and CEO of United Way Suncoast.

United Way Suncoast’s goal is to break the cycle of generational poverty through educational programs that give children the skills to succeed and help adults achieve long-term financial stability so they can support themselves and their families.

Cook has been with Valpak since 1996. She and her team create digital strategies that increase Valpak consumer and advertiser engagement and help establish Valpak as a market leader in online values.

“Nancy has been an integral part of bringing fresh and innovative ideas to Valpak, and I’m pleased she will be able to bring both her strategic insight and generous spirit to the United Way and our communities,” said Michael Vivio, president of Cox Target Media.

Valpak was recently named as one of the top volunteer workplaces in the Tampa Bay region by United Way Suncoast, as well as one of the Top 50 Most Generous Workplaces in fall 2014, which measures campaign and fundraising efforts.
