Farewell event honours QCIF's former CEO

Friends, colleagues and associates bid farewell to Rob Cook, who stepped down as QCIF's CEO last month, at a reception at UQ on Monday, 29 May.

About 40 people attended the event on the St Lucia campus, including QCIF and QFAB staff, and those from Queensland universities and state government.

RCC Director Prof. David Abramson gave a speech, as did both QCIF's former and current eResearch Services Managers, Graham Chen and Nigel Ward, respectively.

Rob has spent the last seven years leading QCIF. Dr Phil Gurney replaced Rob as QCIF's CEO in early May, and he and Rob have worked together over the last month to ensure a smooth leadership transition. Read more about Phil.
