CHASEN COMPANY’S COO, MOISE FOKOU, HONORED WITH BALTIMORE BUSINESS JOURNAL ‘40 UNDER 40’ AWARD
BALTIMORE, MD (September 16, 2020)— Chasen Companies’ CEO, Moise Fokou, has been recognized as a member of the Baltimore Business Journal’s 2020 40 Under 40 class. The prestigious accolade recognizes young professionals in the Greater Baltimore region for outstanding success in business and contributions to their communities. Dubbed one of the region’s most influential young leaders, Fokou will be celebrated at a virtual event this November.
“To be recognized by the Baltimore Business Journal in its 40 Under 40 category is truly an honor,” said Fokou. “I am thankful for the opportunity to build and grow Chasen Companies from the ground up alongside one of my closest friends, Brandon Chasen, while also making a significant impact on the Baltimore community. I look forward to continuing to make progress each and every day to make our community the best it can be.
“Moe’s endurance and drive position him well for leading the development of up to four multi-million dollar multifamily projects on any given day,” added Brandon Chasen, CEO and Founder of Chasen Companies and member of the Baltimore Business Journal’s 2019 40 Under 40 class. “He is one of the most dedicated members of our team, and one of my closest friends—I’m truly thrilled for him to be recognized for his hard work and accomplishments.
Fokou and his team at Chasen Companies are known for turning older historic properties into thriving multifamily developments in popular neighborhoods like Federal Hill, Mount Vernon, and Fells Point. Rooted in the community but growing steadily, the firm’s 300-unit portfolio consists primarily of boutique projects that are transformed into modern apartments, often with a retail concept on the floor of the building. Residents are given access to modern amenities among many of Chasen’s properties, including Vision, a coworking concept in the heart of Federal Hill, and Hello Alfred, a butler concierge who will tidy up space, make beds, and deliver groceries for tenants.
