Josh CohenChief Executive Officer
As our company founder and CEO, Josh is the heart and soul of The Junkluggers. He started The Junkluggers out of his mother’s Dodge Durango in Trumbull, CT when he was 21, and has since grown the company into a multi-state franchised operation. He utilized his degree from the University of Connecticut in Business Administration and his ambition, passion for the environment, marketing savvy, and interest in building a strong company culture to help elevate the company to the level it is at today. Josh began with a firm vision of what he wanted The Junkluggers to become and continues to see it through every step of the way, never looking back.
Josh is an active member in several business organizations within New York City, including the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a global business network of 8,000+ business owners, and Vistage, a network of over 15,000 executives that offers peer advisory boards and professional coaching to aide in company growth and advancement.
In his personal life, Josh enjoys spending time with his family and friends, including his wife, Peggy, their twins Jackson and Fiona, and our very own chief canine officer, Otis. He also loves outdoor sports and adventure, traveling, playing basketball and office parties.
Josh KrisherChief Financial OfficerJosh is Finance Manager of The Junkluggers. His responsibilities include financial and cash management, budgetary planning, and accounting services. In addition, Josh is responsible for financial reporting and compliance. Josh joined The Junkluggers in December 2010. Prior to The Junkluggers, Josh was a senior associate with Ernst & Young. A Certified Public Accountant, Josh earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Washington. Josh hails from Seattle, Washington, but has lived in New York City for the past six years. Despite his relocation, he is still a Pacific Northwesterner at heart, with a true love for hiking and the great outdoors. Josh is a regular jet-setter—flying around the country (and the world), often to see his favorite bands in concert or just to scope out a new adventure.
OtisCanine in ChiefA sweet fourteen-year old, Otis hails from Atlanta. Though he has a commanding presence and photographs like a full-sized labrador, he actually tips the scale at just thirty pounds. In case you were wondering, he is, in fact, half lab and half beagle. Eight years ago, he was adopted into The Junkluggers family, and it was love at first sight. His other loves include milk bones and hiking, but strangely he dislikes puppies. He is an invaluable member of our team and brings extra happiness, hair, and his fabulous mellow personality to our Junkluggers headquarters.
