Under his leadership the company posted record revenues and collected three JD Power Awards for the industry’s highest customer satisfaction. Previous experience also includes positions at Procter & Gamble, American Airlines, and Sunbeam Corporation.
“It’s a great honor to be joining the Twin-Star team. The company is the clear market leader in terms of product design and customer service and I look forward to building on that success,” stated Cohen.
The addition of Robert Cohen to the organization will allow company founder Mark Asofsky to focus his talents on continuing to create new market leading product designs as well as focus on business development while still serving as Co-Chairman for the company.
“Rob’s appointment adds to what I believe is the one of best management teams in the industry,” added Asofsky. “With such a strong team in place I felt this was the right time to take a step back and focus on my true passion, product design. I am also excited to have more time to focus on the charitable activities of the Asofsky Family Foundation”.
Rob will be based out of Twin-Star International’s headquarters, located in Delray Beach, Florida where he will be relocating with his wife Karen.
