ArcTangent’s Founder

Founder and CEO

Larry Cohen

Larry Cohen is a Technology Management Consultant and Change Agent with over 35 years of experience in Strategic and Tactical Planning; Assessments and Transformations; Technical and Business Due Diligence; Technology Problem Solving; Program Management; Project Management; Continuous Process Improvement; Product Development; QA and QA Automation; and Performance Testing – as well as hands-on mentoring, execution, and delivery.

He has successfully delivered projects across multiple industries, such as Financial Services (Capital Markets, Banking, and Insurance), Health Care, Digital Lending, Digital Marketing, Semiconductor, Business Services, Aerospace & Defense, Telecommunications, Risk Management, Medical Devices, Pharma, and Satellite Communication.

Larry was a Testing Strategy Consultant at Citigroup, a Chief Testing Strategist at JPMorgan Chase, Global Head of QA at Experian, and was the Chief IT Architect and Head of the Quality Engineering practice for the IT consulting division of The Boston Consulting Group.

Larry holds a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.

Bill PassoltCEO of OMSNIC and Fortress Insurance Company

"Larry asked great questions, quickly learned and understood our business, collaborated with both the business and technology sides, identified and prioritized our issues, clearly communicated effective solutions, and then led ten projects to drive improvements across my organization. I was most impressed with Larry’s passion, dedication, and persistence throughout the assessment and transformation program, and how he provided insights, outlined our options, and helped us make difficult strategic decisions."

Craig LawtonCEO of BCG Platinion North America and Senior Partner and Managing Director Boston Consulting Group

"As a Senior Partner and Managing Director at BCG, it is my pleasure to provide this recommendation for Larry, in his role as our Chief IT Architect and Head of our Quality Engineering practice. Larry is an expert in Quality Engineering and a broad array of topics across the SDLC. He has a strong work ethic, is a great team player, is very dedicated, and goes the extra mile. Members of numerous BCG teams have reached out to him for advice on a wide range of technical topics and were impressed with his detailed and insightful responses. I have been impressed with Larry's professionalism and appreciate how he has developed trusting relationships with our clients and produces high quality deliverables."

Andrew CustardVice President of Sales at SOASTA

"Managing a global initiative to improve application quality, customer experience, and performance is never easy... leading it across different organizations, new acquisitions, management, and product teams should have been brutally hard. Larry managed the process, stakeholders, competing groups, acquisition of new technology, vendor relationships, and an aggressive schedule with insight, discipline, and a steady hand. He pushed for higher standards (and got them) while never leaving the team behind. As success grew, he navigated press and marketing requests and served as a public face for the project. Larry delivers on all fronts with precision, partnership, grace and a passion for excellence."

David LauerCEO at Urvin Finance

"Larry is the best kind of CTO - a combination of deep technical knowledge and a great manager. He's extremely detail-oriented and process-oriented, but never to the detriment of project progress. If you need him to fix a problem with Linux or troubleshoot a NAS, he'll never hesitate to get his hands dirty! I've known Larry a long time, and he's always been a pleasure to work with. His knowledge is impressive, and he's always looking to combine decades of experience with a passion for cutting-edge technology."
