Cohen Architectural Woodworking Names Nate Cohen Chief Financial Officer
January 14, 2019 –Cohen Architectural Woodworking announces the appointment of Nate Cohen to serve as Chief Financial Officer. Cohen will oversee the finances of the 36 year-old company that standardizes, designs and builds custom millwork components and casework for clients nationwide.
Cohen, age 29, most recently served as a Senior Project Manager. He has performed and excelled in various roles for the family-owned and family-run business for some 24 years, from sweeping the shop floor at age 5, to serving in engineering, and in project management.
“Nate is highly motivated and well suited to serve as our Chief Financial Officer. He has a thorough understanding of accounting and finance, tracking expenses since age 17, and has grown with us as we evolved from a small shop to a large manufacturing facility with some 80 employees.

“Nate has also demonstrated an outstanding ability to learn, grow and excel with each new each position and has readily accepted greater responsibilities.
