Globe St. released their list of Best Bosses for 2021. Included in the list is CGI+ Founder and CEO, Gidi Cohen. They said, “Gidi Cohen has built a reputation as an innovator in residential development.
Responding to millennial demand, he creates luxury, fully furnished, move-in ready apartments equipped with technology and hotel-style amenities, including concierge services. As founder and CEO of CGI+ Real Estate Investment Strategies, Cohen has led the firm to complete more than $1 billion in transactions. The company is currently developing its third project in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, the $50 million 200-unit, Fedora.
This success is a direct result of Cohen’s hands-on and family-forward leadership style. “The team, which we call our family, makes up the fabric of the company,” says Kasia Mays, COO at CGI. Other employees have applauded Cohen’s vision, communication and positive outlook, even during challenges. “While many CEOs can be more rigid in their thinking, Gidi is just the opposite. He likes to listen and hear different perspectives and he makes people around him comfortable. His emotion permeates his team,” adds Andre Soroudi, director of acquisitions. The company culture has not only ensured a strong and enthusiastic staff, but has also supported the CGI’s stability through the pandemic.”
