Supporting the creation and cultivation of Blackline’s new partner program, Brendon Cook has been appointed as Chief Partnership Officer (CPO) to expand and support this new program. Mr. Cook co-founded Blackline Safety in 2004 and has supported its growth as a technology leader, and in recent years, has overseen its marketing communications programs.
