NEW YORK - Loeb & Loeb announced today that Alan Cutler will be joining the firm as Chief Operating Officer. Cutler has over 25 years of experience building and providing administrative leadership to professional services management teams. He joins the firm from Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, LLC (a subsidiary of Cozen O'Connor) where he served as Vice President, performing special projects for the CEO and Administrative Partner.
