Dr. Bill Cook dedicated much of his life toward the betterment of public education. His passion would eventually lead to the founding of The Colonial Group, later known as The Cambrian Group, in 1977.
Dr. Cook spent 44 years working with his associates and school administrators across 1,500 districts.
His 1986 book, “Strategic Planning for America’s Schools”, is still considered an essential text in college graduate programs across the country.

Dr. Cook’s noble purpose was serving the many educators he met in his accomplished lifetime. He thrived on new challenges and treasured the relationships he made along the way. Dr. Cook’s legacy now continues through the work of The Cambrian Group Associates and our commitment to the service of others.
