DELRAY BEACH, Fla.-Twin-Star International has named Robert Cohen chief executive officer.

Cohen spent 11 years with Armstrong World Industries, culminating in his role as president and CEO of Armstrong Cabinet Products. His previous experience also includes positions at Procter & Gamble, American Airlines, and Sunbeam Corporation.

"It's a great honor to be joining the Twin-Star team," Cohen said. "The company is the clear market leader in terms of product design and customer service and I look forward to building on that success."
