Ron Cogan heads up Communications for Entertainment Partners (EP). He earned his BA from Vassar College and spent several years directing theater in New York and Los Angeles before attending the Anderson School of Management at UCLA and earning his MBA. While still at Anderson, he worked as a Marketing Intern for SONY Computer Entertainment and drafted the original business plan for the rollout of the SONY Playstation. After developing feature film projects at Acappella Pictures and driving content development at How2.com he landed at EP, where he launched and built the Communications group.
Cogan spearheaded an evolution to a brand-based marketing strategy, moving EP’s perception from that of a services provider to one of an industry partner. He led the company’s cultural transformation from a traditional model to one empowered by 100% employee ownership and continues to oversee development and implementation of programs which consistently win recognition on both regional and national levels. He frequently speaks at national conferences and meets annually with legislators on Capitol Hill to educate about and seek support for employee ownership.
