In Gratitude: Michael Cohn, M.D.

2023 Yakir Keren Hayesod Award recipient

Stockholm, Sweden

A prodigiously multifaceted entrepreneur and medical doctor with expertise in global industry, high tech, marketing, and business leadership, Michael Cohn divides his time between his native Stockholm and his apartment in Tel Aviv. His family, too, is spread between Sweden, Israel, and the US.

Founder and CEO of market-leading hightech sales and distribution company Parameter Innovation, Michael is additionally involved in the field of machine vision and imaging, and his company Nanor distributes piezo-based nanotechnology and photonics products in Scandinavia and Poland.

He has practiced medicine at the renowned research university Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, and became a published researcher during his time at the Sharett Institute of Oncology of Hadassah Hospital.

In addition to Michael’s remarkable track record in the business world as founder and board member of countless prosperous companies and organizations, he has also held leadership positions among several Jewish organizations, including serving for nine years as President of Förenade Israelinsamlingen, Keren Hayesod’s Sweden offices (he is currently Deputy Chairman), and as Board Treasurer of the Jewish Congregation of Stockholm, in which he remains highly active. Under his leadership, the KH Sweden campaign office prospered significantly and blossomed into one of the stronger Keren Hayesod presences in Europe.

Michael Cohn’s dedication to improving the world around him is a testament to his character and the values he holds dear, making him an exemplary role model by going above and beyond in his effort to make a positive impact. Following in his footsteps leads to the understanding that true success is not just measured by personal achievements, but by one’s concern for others and efforts to empower them.
