Always Say Never - A Message from our CEO– August 01, 2012 by Randy Myeroff

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill

At Cohen & Company, we definitely fall on the side of the optimist. But we like to think we elevate Mr. Churchill’s concept to a bold new level. (No offense, Mr. Churchill.) We strive to help our clients seize every opportunity.

Now, we know that sounds bold. And opportunity can mean a lot of things. It can mean interpreting tax law to help our clients minimize their taxes and maximize their cash flow. It can mean building a deeper relationship with our clients by helping them strategize for growth. Or it can mean partnering with our clients to help those in the community who really need it.

Our firm has spent 35 years carefully crafting an "opportunity-based culture."And we believe we’ve proven ourselvesup to the task. Just ask our clients (happy to provide names if you’re looking).

So we are more than excited to introduce new opportunities to engage with you, such as our new website, this blog, social media and other creative means of communication you will see from us in the coming months. In particular, we hope you make this blog your central resource for the latest in technical and business insights.

“Never Miss an Opportunity®” is much more than a tagline to us. This is who we areand what all of us should expect from our service providers. Welcome to Cohen & Company’s new “Never Miss” blog. Looking forward to talking with you soon!
