Gerald D. Cohen is the President and CEO of Information Builders. Gerry co-founded Information Builders in 1975 to develop a software product that would allow non-programmers to create their own information systems.

Building on this foundation, Information Builders solutions have been used to construct information systems for thousands of companies, universities and government agencies around the world.
