Titans Club Captain Ryan James has lauded General Manager of Community and Game Development Renee Cohen as a “critical part of the Gold Coast’s DNA” after her nomination in the 2020 Harvey Norman Gold Coast Women of the Year People’s Choice Award.
Cohen’s nomination was announced on the weekend, recognising her outstanding community with the Titans Together program.
Cohen is one of only four Titans staff members to have been with the Club since its inception and James said there was no one more deserving of the award given her commitment to the Gold Coast community.
“Renee is one of the most inspirational people I have ever worked with,” James said.
“She is extremely selfless, and always puts everyone else first. She is a critical part of the Gold Coast’s DNA, and is definitely deserving of an award of this stature.
“Renee genuinely cares for everyone and everything around her, but never really gets the recognition she deserves.
“Without Ren working tirelessly in the background, a lot of what we do as a Club and as people in the community doesn’t get done.”
The Titans playing group is renowned for their community work. None more so than James, who in 2019 won the prestigious Ken Stephen Medal for outstanding service to the community.
But James said the Titans players were just following Cohen’s lead and example.
“The way she leads us in the community sector is the main reason players choose to do the community work they do,” he said. “We follow great leadership, which is what Renee Cohen embodies.
“Ren doesn’t have a bad bone in her body, and everybody who has come into contact with or knows Ren will tell you exactly the same thing.
“There is no one else I would love to see recognised with the Woman of the Year Award than Renee Cohen, as I know she has changed so many people’s lives for the better, and her genuine love and care for the Titans community.”
