clever team
Explanation:
I would interpret this with 'cohort' meaning pretty much the same as 'team' — probably not literally exactly the same people, but the generalized group of people previously responsible for the other chain of stores mentioned.

behind = who thought of / designed / originated / created / responsible for etc.
