Carl Cook has been named CEO of Bloomington-based medical device company Cook Group, replacing his father, who died Friday, company officials announced Saturday.

Company founder Bill Cook died of congestive heart failure at the age of 80 in his Bloomington home.

Carl Cook, 49, had most recently been serving as president of the company's Cook MyoSite division and vice chairman of the Cook board.

Company officials also said the business will continue as a privately held corporation with global headquarters in Bloomington. Cook Group had revenue of about $2 billion last year.

Steve Ferguson will stay on as chairman and Kem Hawkins will continue as Cook Group president, the company said.
