Throughout his career Meir Cohen has proven himself to be exceptionally adept at identifying and capitalizing on opportunistic investments that focus on overlooked potential. Born in Israel, Mr. Cohen began his real estate career in New York City in 1984 with only a few hundred dollars. In his first few years Mr. Cohen completed over forty transactions and developed a complementary parking business throughout Greater New York City. In 1992, Mr. Cohen and his partner created C&K Properties, a real estate investment firm that has owned and operated over six million square feet of commercial property interests. Mr. Cohen founded Cohen Equities in the wake of the financial crisis as a new vehicle to focus on acquiring distressed real estate assets. Since its inception in 2011, Cohen Equities has acquired over fifty properties culminating in over four million square feet of office and retail assets throughout the United States. Under Mr. Cohen’s leadership, the firm continues to aggressively expand its national value-add platform.

Mr. Cohen lives in Manhattan with his wife and four children and is active in various philanthropic and civic causes.
