The founder of Berkley Development (which he named after his daughter in 2016), Mike Cohn personally works on every project we undertake. He’s a hands-on, heads-up leader whose characteristically “active sense of calm” has become a hallmark of how we do business—high-energy, high-capacity, high-confidence, but never high-strung or high-pressure.
A co-founder of Lennar Commercial (a Miami, FL-based subsidiary of Lennar Corporation, which sold to a private equity firm in 2015), former Executive VP at Cousins Properties in Atlanta, and Senior Managing Director at Faison & Associates, Mike’s career has spanned more than 15 million square feet of projects—including nationwide platforms of retail, office and mixed-use properties stretching from California to Florida and Maine, and valued well in excess of $2B.
He holds a BBA with high distinction in Accounting and Finance from Emory University as well as a Juris Doctor degree with honors from the University of Florida College of Law.
When he’s not collaborating with our partners, he serves as a member of several non-profit boards—including the University of Florida Real Estate Advisory Board, ULI Commercial and Retail Development Product Council (Gold), and the ICSC and GA Bar members. He’s also a regular guest lecturer at the Goizuetta School of Business (Emory), the Warrington College of Business (University of Florida) and the Kenan-Flagler School of Business (University of North Carolina).
