Andy Cohen is the co-founder and CEO of Caring.com. While caring for his mom during her losing battle with lung cancer, Andy realized that there wasn’t a comprehensive website to help people figure out how to navigate all of the challenges of caring for aging parents. Andy founded Caring.com in 2007 to help make a difficult journey a little bit easier.
With three million unique visitors every month, Caring.com is the leading online destination for family members who are caring for aging loved ones. Caring.com provides objective information, a community of support and a local senior services directory that features 100,000 consumer reviews. Caring.com has been written about in USA Today, The Wall St. Journal, The New York Times, Money Magazine and Business Week. In May, 2014, Caring.com was purchased for $54 million by Bankrate, Inc.
Prior to founding Caring.com, Andy held leadership positions in marketing and sales at SC Johnson Wax, Intuit, Instill, Peapod and SuccessFactors, where he grew businesses from start-up to tens of millions of dollars in revenue. Andy is a frequent speaker on caregiving topics, and serves on the board of directors of the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC). Andy earned a B.A. in history from Stanford University and an M.B.A. in marketing from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management.
