35 Years and Still Going Strong!

In 1980, while still employed at Hewlett Packard, and with management’s approval, I started consulting to the Associated General Contractors of California (AGC) on IH issues.  The assistance I provided to the AGC was the start of The Cohen Group.  Thirty-five years later, I am extremely proud to say The Cohen Group not only still exists, but we continue to be one of the most respected occupational health and safety consulting firms, with clients throughout the US.  I am also proud to say that we still have many of our very first clients.  Two things have made The Cohen Group (TCG) successful.  First, although we are frequently requested to assist with many environmental health issues, we primarily provide the occupational health and safety services we know best.  Our clients tell us there are few consultants that know the subject matter better than us.  It is that deep understanding of the subject matter, our technical expertise and depth of experience, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to make sure our clients are completely satisfied with the services provided that sets The Cohen Group apart from the rest.  We frequently receive very nice unsolicited comments from our clients about our work product.  They also tell us that we are the go-to group for all difficult projects for them because they know we’ll get the job done.  Secondly, The Cohen Group is special because of its people.  Most of you know our staff because they have remained virtually unchanged in our 35 year history.  Tim, Julie, Mark and Deneen have been the backbone of the company for many, many years.  When I say “many years”, this team, for the most part, has been with me for more than 25 years, which is truly a gift.  Briana, our receptionist and administrative assistant, is the newbie, but she is proving to be a perfect member of our family.  When speaking of our success, I must also mention my wife Susie, who truly was the visionary for the company and the one who convinced me to leave HP and to grow The Cohen Group into what it has become.  Thank you all for making The Cohen Group a successful, thriving company.  We look forward to continue serving you all for many more years to come.
