By: Cohen Architectural Woodworking
Cohen, age 32, joins a select group making an impact at their jobs, and in the community. Through innovation, motivation or inspiration, honorees are contributing in the areas of productivity, profitability, social good (locally or globally), ingenuity, innovation, peer inspiration, product development, and organizational leadership.
"It's always difficult to select the best of the best when it comes to judging the 40 under 40 nominees. In addition to building successful businesses and careers, the Class of 2020 was rocked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the biggest challenge most of us have ever faced," said Harry Urban, publisher of Woodworking Network. "I applaud this year's honorees for their ability to keep their companies moving forward in the toughest of times while dedicating themselves to their communities and public causes."
"The Wood Industry 40 Under 40 represents some of the talented people in our industry and I am most humbled to receive this special recognition,"
Cohen started from the ground up in this family owned business performing in a variety of capacities. An excellent problem solver she has been involved with the company for some 15 years, has grown and taken on more responsibility, and is an integral part of the Cohen ownership group.
