About Us

Barry R. Cohen

Having been an independent insurance broker/agent for over 35 years, I have had the privilege and honor of servicing clients from PA, NY, NJ, CT and many other states in our nation. As President of Seide, Jonas and Cohen and now Cohen Partners LLC, my clients have ranged from retailers, wholesalers, professionals, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, personal accounts, and many more. Our staff is ready and able to handle a variety of risks to guide our clients to their most beneficial programs.

The diversity of our clientele makes my role as President, broker, financial consultant, risk manager, and liaison exciting and refreshing with ever account. In the beginning of 2013, I was honored to join the Board of Directors of the Montgomery County Development Corp. It is exciting and energizing to be part of the economic growth of Montgomery County, and hope to contribute to the business development of this vibrant community. Among my extra activities, I am also pleased to be on the Board of Directors of the Voice Experience of Savannah, which honors the world-renowned Baritone Sherrill Milnes and brings Opera to a larger audience. I am also a member of the Richard Tucker Foundation which honors the legacy of Richard Tucker, opera Tenor. My wife and I are also pleased to be part of Friends Without a Border, March of Dimes, and The American Friends of Rabin Medical Center. My passions are as varied as possible, with a love for golf, ice-hockey, travel and music.
