Leonard S. Cohen - President, CEO
Leonard S. Cohen, the President and CEO of Veeco Salon Furniture + Design, is an elder statesman of the industry who grew up in the manufacturing and design business. C & W, originally founded in 1927 by Leonard’s grandfather Solomon Cohen, was reopened as Veeco in 1942 by his father, Harvey Cohen and later taken over by Leonard. What has allowed Veeco to retain it prominence through changing styles, evolving trends, and economic ups and downs has been Leonard’s determination to lead by example. He observes everything and watches where the industry is going so that he can provide his customers with what they need before they even know they want it.
Leonard’s focus on building relationships and adapting to innovative ways of doing business is why, even after 50 years in furniture, he had never had a boring day at work. His “hands on”approach to manufacturing involves working closely with each customer or designer to create a unique look that makes the best use of space for maximum profitability.
In his well-deserved free time, Len loves to read, golf, and enjoy family time with his wife, 6 children, and 7 grandchildren.
