He was formerly a helper on the writing committee.

He is an anointed brother in bethel that about 3 years ago got assigned to Writing Correspondence from Bethel Office in Wallkill.

He is not a rule oriented brother at all. Definitely a people person, a pleasurable brother. Makes people around him feel relaxed an at ease.

Brother Cook started pioneering on September 1, 1982, and began serving at the United States branch on October 12, 1984.

He has been in Bethel his entire life evidently. No children. 

The Governing Body is now composed of eight anointed brothers.

For more about the Governing Body see:

I will update this list of members here:

I don't think he's quite as young as Brother Sanderson was when he was appointed, I think in his early 50's. Probably 53 to 55.

quote from one source:

"In the United States, ideally, we are led by a government and not rulers. A government exerts its power based upon reason and the interests of its people (look up "the tragedy of the commons" for an explanation of how to logically determine what should be regulated - there is a considerable amount of personal behavior that a government can logically find a legitimate interest in regulating, but such regulation should be based upon the external effects of this personal behavior that are uncovered through reason). A ruler exerts his power arbitrarily and according to personal interests.
A government founded on reason only regulates that behavior which has an impact beyond one's self. A ruler dictates all that may be done, even in the privacy of one's own home."

JW have "governing body".  GB are main church body that interprets Bible, giving instructions, and decisions on members  behaviour.  Also, what and how this people/members need, must to act according to their interpretations. For that GB need rules also.  

Government governs over people. So WT is government. GB members are both, governors and rulers, as term "governing body" tells us. 

The government is the group of people who are responsible for governing it.

Government consists of the activities, methods, and principles involved in governing.

The exercise of authority over a state, district, organization, institution, etc.; direction; control; rule; management.
