Global Edge Investments (GEI), founded in 1998, is a hospitality and tech investment company that develops, acquires, manages and asset manages hotel and restaurant properties, primarily in the United States and Canada.
From a team of one, the company has expanded to over 1,000 associates through affiliated divisions and is directly linked to the oversight of $100 million in annual sales. When the opportunity arises, GEI will make investments in the hospitality sector that fall out of this core focus. GEI currently owns hotels and restaurants & bars, and through its partnership with Crescent Hotels & Resorts, manages 15 hotels in Canada and another 75 in the United States.
GEI is also an active investor in technology platforms that, while not limited to hospitality, do benefit from GEI’s extensive experience, established reputation and strategic partnerships in that industry.
A businessman and entrepreneur, Tony Cohen is President & CEO of Global Edge Investments. He has been involved in the hospitality industry for 27 years.
