Sam started out in the family business that was founded by his father, Dan Cook Sr., and grew-up learning about the aspects of business. By the age of sixteen, Sam had moved into a sales position at the company which he balanced with the demands of high school. In 1989 he graduated from Doss High School as President of his Senior Class, and as a member of the Doss Athletics Hall of Fame. After graduation, he entered the Business Administration Program at the University of Louisville, and by 1995 took over as Production Manager of Superior Van Conversions where they built full size luxury conversion vans. During the mid 1990s, Sam recognized the potential growth of the mobility industry and how the minivan was emerging as a fuel efficient option for many people and knew it was time for a change. With this insight in hand, Sam decided it was time to switch gears and eliminate building full size conversions, and focus more on the minivan and mobility industry as a whole. Today, Sam has taken the family business of one location to nine locations across the United States, and has made Superior Van & Mobility one of the largest mobility dealers in the country. In addition to his success, Sam is currently serving his second term as President of NMEDA, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association, representing Mobility Dealers, Manufactures and Driver Rehab Specialists across the country. Personally Sam has been married to his High School Sweetheart, Kathy, since 1993. Together they have two children, Allison who is seventeen and Alex who is sixteen, both are very involved in sports. When not watching his children play, you'll find Sam cheering along his favorite team, University of Louisville.
