Ira D. Cohen, who earned a degree in accounting in 1973, received the Alumni Achievement Award at the Lehman College Foundation’s 2013 Recognition Awards Ceremony — Dinner with the Stars.
Mr. Cohen, who serves as managing director of Signal Hill Partners, has more than thirty years of experience in the technology industry as an investment banker, private equity investor and chief financial officer. He has advised on more than 200 transactions in the IT services, software and Internet sectors.
“I’m a first generation college graduate, as is my brother,” said Mr. Cohen. “I think it is more a testament to my parents, who were not college graduates. They pushed me pretty hard. And that transcends into business.”
