Meir Cohen

Chairman/CEO, Cohen Equities


With over 30 years of experience as a real estate investor across multiple asset classes and investment strategies, Meir has a well-earned reputation as one of the most entrepreneurial private real estate investors in the United States. Starting with only a few thousand dollars in 1984, Meir has successfully acquired and enhanced the value of over 10 million square feet of real estate nationally through his various investment platforms. Whether through location (he was early to Manhattan’s Hudson River waterfront and Penn Station submarkets), asset class (he aggressively acquired and exited large scale Class-A office buildings between 2003 and 2005) or property interest (he made astute investments in CMBS securities in 2009), Meir has proven himself to be a unique identifier of opportunistic investments that focus on unrealized potential.
