Chad Cohen, CFE,
Senior Vice President
At Fish, Chad believes unconditionally in the absolute power of the idea and it’s his job to make sure they work. He has the uncanny ability to put himself on the consumer or franchisee end of any communications program while asking, “Do they get it?” until he is sure they do. Chad is obsessed with making sure Fish’s projects are creative, on target, on budget and on time so they deliver the greatest return on investment. Whether it’s building a non-profit partnership for a national franchise client, helping launch an emerging brand or developing a communications strategy for a 6,000-unit chain, building the foundation on which a brand stands is what he does best. He lives in Miami, Florida with his wife Bibiana and their two sons.
