Rachel Cohen


Co-Founder and Co-CEO
Rachel is the co-founder and co-CEO of Snowe, the direct-to-consumer homewares company that’s won accolades from Architectural Digest, Fast Company, Forbes, and Vogue, among others.

Rachel began SNOWE in 2015 with co-founder Andres Modak, while the two were outfitting their first home. Uninspired by mass-market budget buys, and unimpressed by pretentious luxury brands, the two Wharton grads set off to create their own company of well-designed, high-quality home essentials.

Snowe’s luxury-quality pieces at non-luxury prices – as well as their innovative retail space in NYC, The Whitespace – have won them many awards, loyal customers, and much industry recognition.

Prior to founding SNOWE, Rachel worked in real estate investment banking at BGC Partners, advising hotel and lifestyle clients; previously she managed a boutique co-working space, a subsidiary of SL Green. Rachel holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Michigan and an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
