    Cocks entered Hasbro in 2016, becoming the President and COO of both Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro’s digital gaming division. Wizards of The Coast is well-known for role-playing games, board games, and card games such as Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons. It’s worth noting that Cocks was a key factor in Wizards of the Coast being reformed into one of Hasbro’s three major divisions.
