ASU Now, Arizona State University's official multimedia news and information outlet, recognized Coyotes President and CEO Ahron Cohen, alum of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, with a feature articulated by the graduate school's Director of Communications, Nicole Almond Anderson.
The 35-year-old Cohen, who was recently named to Phoenix Business Journal's "40 under 40" list, joined the Coyotes in August of 2015 and was named the team's President and CEO in July of 2018.
Coming off a season in which Cohen spearheaded the Coyotes to the franchise's highest ever year-over-year increase in ticket sales, his journey to lead what Anderson titles "an NHL revival in the desert" is outlined through his experience at Arizona State University, his work in the Phoenix community, and of course, the support of his family.
From ASU Now:
"The thing I enjoy most is the opportunity to be a builder and really help grow this franchise into a model sports organization," he said. "Every single day, when I go to bed at night, and when I wake up, there's always more that we can do. And we can always take a positive step forward and be better today than we were yesterday. And that's the excitement for me. There are a lot of positions out there where the status quo is acceptable. That's not the case for us. So I love that opportunity of continuing to grow and build something and develop it into something great."
