Get to know more about The Myers Y. Cooper Company

If you could explain your business in the simplest way, how would you?

We create environments that support business operations and success.  As example, a shopping center with ease of access, visibility, parking, pleasing design and functionality for customers.

What was the inspiration behind the business?

As fourth generation to operate our family business, my inspiration and challenge is to live up to the standard of previous leaders. Given the responsibility to continue in their footsteps has been big shoes to fill.

What are the three most important things about your business?

The Cooper Company has developed residential and commercial real estate in Greater Cincinnati for 125 years.  Our greatest attribute is:

  • Adding to the fabric of the community with quality projects that stand the test of time.
  • Being a good neighbor – maintaining property in good condition.
  • Maintaining good relations with our stakeholders: Investors, Employees, and Customers. 

What is your favorite part or your job?

The favorite part of my job is meeting with prospective clients.  Learning about their business, how it works and how I can be of service.  It’s rewarding to see a project come together.

What is your key to success?

Our key to success is attention to detail and saying what we do and doing what we say.

What is a dream project for your company?

Each of our development projects start as a dream. We begin with finding the site, designing the building, securing approvals to build, and then building the dream. The process may have a few nightmares and sleepless nights but the end result is sweet. 

Describe yourself in three words.

Thoughtful, Intentional, Cheerful.

Does Myers Y Cooper donate to any charities? Which ones and why?

We believe we are responsible to give back to the community with our time, treasures, and talents. As an organization we have service days with Habitat for Humanity and Matthew 25.  Our team supports Boy Scouts of America and Springer School. Financially the list is robust and corporate gifts including United way, Fine Arts Fund, Springer School and Ohioana Library near the top of our annual giving list.

What is your favorite thing about owning a business in Montgomery?

The continuing effort to improve is special for me and fellow business operators at Montgomery Square.  I’ve observed this attribute with the Chamber members, City Council and residents all striving to make the jewel even brighter. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this effort.
