Cleveland-based Cohen & Company (FY13 net revenue of $40.8 million) founder Ron Cohen celebrated his 80th birthday on May 17. The event was marked at the firm’s annual leadership retreat on May 1, including a surprise visit from a handful of the firm’s former partners, and with a small gathering in the office later that week for all employees.

Cohen founded Cohen & Company in 1977. He truly believed in the firm’s motto of “SQIF,” the firm’s acronym for service, quality, innovation and fun, to help motivate employees and provide clients with the best possible technical advice and service.

Upon retirement from the firm in 1999, Cohen became partner emeritus. He continues to be passionate about helping private companies and their owners succeed. He frequently mentors entrepreneurs and advises high-potential start-ups in the region.
