President, Meyda Tiffany Lighting and 2nd Ave. Lighting
Bob Cohen turned Meyda Lighting, founded by his parents in 1974, into a leading manufacturer and designer of decorative lighting, especially Tiffany-style. His business expanded several years ago when he acquired 2nd Avenue Lighting, and through it all, he’s worked to develop innovations that transcend custom architectural lighting for any budget.
Cohen has received accolades from his numerous supporters: “His achievements have gone unrecognized for many years,” says Larry Travis of Larry Travis Assoc.
“As their vendor, I deal with Meyda on a regular basis,” says Linda Gleason, General Manager of Luminance’s New York facility. “The employees love him, spending hours going that extra mile for Bob. He treats them as family and values them very highly. In these difficult economic times Bob has shown great leadership in guiding his company to success, unafraid to step into new venues.”
