“What started as volunteerism has developed into a philanthropic strategy. Cohen has developed a company culture rooted in his passion for people, and provides technology that organizations can thrive on. He hires based on this culture too. “Our team is driven to excel and is competitive, but they are also people of incredibly good character,” Cohen says
An accomplished leader in managed services, Microsoft cloud computing and cyber security, Cohen is singularly focused on his mission to help small and medium-sized businesses in Northern Illinois create a bigger impact by maximizing their mission through optimizing their efficiency and improving their performance through technology. “We may not be able to help the homeless community directly, but we can provide great technology to the homeless shelters so they, in turn, accomplish their mission to help those in need,” Cohen explains. “The more organizations we can help through technology, the larger the impact we can have on our community."
