Larry Cohen

President and CEO

Larry has been President and CEO of Axis since he founded it in 1991.  A graduate of Duke University and The University of Pennsylvania Law School, Larry quickly realized that his entrepreneurial spirit and creative energies were not being harnessed working in law-related fields.  With a few good ideas, a lot of enthusiasm and a share of naiveté, Larry began Axis with a mission to develop a full-service promotional products company that focused on delivering creative solutions and not merely selling products. It is all about the strategy behind the products.  Our tag line says a lot about what drives us - 180 Degrees From Ordinary. At Axis, we are passionate about helping the best brands in the world tell stories.  Stories that solve problems.  Stories that change behaviors.  Stories that are told on tangible products that leave a lasting impression.  From humble beginnings around his kitchen table, Axis’ has grown to over 70 employees with offices in New York City, White Plains, New York, Boston, Massachusetts and Chicago, Illinois. AXIS’ client base covers an exceptionally broad cross-section of industries (Pharmaceutical, Entertainment, Financial, Beauty and Fashion, Publishing and Sports) including companies such as American Express (under contract nationally).  Axis has been named Counselor Magazine’s Top 40 Distributors five years in a row, Promo Marketing Magazine Top 40 Distributor, 4 Gold 2015 PPAI Awards, SAAGNY Distributor of the Year, and PPB’s Greatest Companies to Work For. Axis now ranks as one of the top promotional merchandising agencies in the United States. When Larry is not busy growing Axis, he is lending his expertise serving on the board of the Promotional Products Association International, PromoKitchen Advisory Board, Peernet Marketing Committee, and former chair of the North American Leadership Conference.
