Michael Cohn

Director, Principal

Mike serves as a Principal and Director of WolfPAC Integrated Risk Management® at Wolf & Company, P.C. He is responsible for the strategic direction of the group, and provides enterprise risk management (ERM) strategic advisory services and board training to community-based financial institutions. An expert on ERM, he routinely speaks on the topic before banking professionals nationwide.

The increased maturity of enterprise risk management in fast changing community-based institutions provides an opportunity for tight integration with business strategy, innovation, and important operational activities including risk appetite, key risk indicators (KRIs), and cost of risk management measurement. Mike believes this decade will be remembered as the renaissance of risk management, where a new generation of risk professionals challenge pre-conceptions and establish a new value proposition for the role of chief risk officer.

Mike is an avid extreme adventurer with 25+ years of experience snowboarding, multi-day back country hiking, and rock climbing. When not acting as a “soccer dad,” he tries to convince his teenage children that mom is really going ice climbing on the family vacation.

Areas of Expertise

Prior to joining Wolf in 2003, Mike worked in multi-national financial institutions and technology start-ups. With over 25 years in the banking and technology industries, he has extensive knowledge in technology strategy and management issues, enterprise risk management programs, and corporate governance design.
