Danny Cohen, who recently stepped down from his executive position at Bank Leumi, one of Israel’s two largest banks, has been appointed as chairman of boutique hotel chain Brown, the chain announced Tuesday. Until March this year, Cohen headed Bank Leumi’s retail banking division since 2016. He has been with the bank for nearly 30 years.
