Cohen & Company has announced plans to expand their footprint in Northeast Ohio, adding more than 60 new jobs and retaining 320 positions. The firm will expand throughout its three Ohio locations, including its Cleveland headquarters and Akron and Youngstown offices. The Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) approved the project for tax credit assistance at its meeting today.
“Northeast Ohio has been our home since we opened our doors nearly 45 years ago,” says Cohen & Company CEO Randy Myeroff. “We are grateful for the support the region has given us, and we know how critically important it is to give back. Adding jobs and recommitting to this region’s continued development and rising star status is truly exciting for us.”
Cohen & Company chose to expand in Northeast Ohio given its longtime commitment to the success of the region and strong partnerships with the area’s numerous universities and colleges. An economic development team comprised of JobsOhio, Team NEO, Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber, city of Youngstown and ODOD worked with company executives to ensure the organization grew its operations here.
“The Northeast Ohio Region has a strong and supportive business community with a 100-plus-year heritage in financial services, part of our growing, world-class professional services cluster,” added Team NEO CEO Bill Koehler. “Along with our local partners, ODOD and JobsOhio, Team NEO, we welcome Cohen & Company’s expansion here and are committed to working with company leaders to ensure their ongoing success and growth of their business.”
