The Barbizon Lighting Company welcomes Nicholas Cohen as the new General Manager responsible for the daily management and leadership for the company’s Florida operations.
From his early days working as a recording engineer with top artists (Brian McKnight, Redman, Mos Def, Tommy Byrnes) that have very particular requirements, Nicholas gained a great understanding of how to listen to clients and then help them achieve the best performance possible. Those skills were then further developed when he moved into the corporate/live event arena. Working on large production events and with many Fortune 500 companies (South Beach Food and Wine Festival, The Superbowl, Dow Chemical, Apple, Microsoft, Amway) continued to expand his wealth of experience and understanding of how to deliver for both a company as well as for his clients.
“Nick understands both the business and customer service sides of the industry and that is a talent that is very important to us at Barbizon,” remarked Barbizon’s President Jonathan Resnick, "Nick is also very familiar with the Florida market and its nuances which will also be an asset to his team and our customers."
Cohen is still in the process of getting settled and at one of the entrainment lighting industry’s most admired privately-held corporations.
"Leading Barbizon’s Florida operations is a challenge I am excited to take on," Nick noted. "Barbizon’s dedication to superior customer service and quality products and systems at a fair price is a concept that I’ve always followed and deeply believe in. We have a great team already in place and I’m excited to be a part of this already successful team."
Cohen will be working out of Barbizon’s Miramar offices and can be reached at 954-919-6495 or emailed at ncohen [at] barbizon.com.
