Fox & Associates - Nurturing Business and Professional Growth
Consulting with Purpose and Results
Since 2003, I’ve been working in London to help companies grow - from helping a division of a medium company enter new geographies and market segments to assisting companies with less than 20 employees grow to more than 200. From strategic planning to practical yet innovative solutions, my focus is always on building an efficient and results-driven relationship that focuses on your customers and your team. I’ll work with you to create a customised plan of action for yourself or your organisation. We can work together for a day, a month, a year or as long as we are getting positive results. Get in touch to learn more about my vision and consulting approach.
I am originally from the USA, hold an MBA in International Business and have over 20 years of experience in marketing, HR, operations, sales and general management. My experience ranges from the tech sector to the charity/non-profit space to digital media, sports, education and celebrity endorsement and branding. I have held the role of COO, Interim Managing Director, General Manager, Global Account Director and Business Unit Manager. Please see my LinkedIn profile for more information on my career and experience. Happy to send my CV on request.

Working with Suz is a real pleasure and her experience is second to none.
She is one of the most proactive, innovative managers that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. With a wide ranging skill base, she is knowledgeable and extremely well connected.
In practice, she brings a very clear and uncomplicated approach to important issues and cuts through complexity to deliver tangible and valuable results .
I wish her well and am delighted to recommend her.
Angus Rankine, Angel Investor & Entrepreneur
I learned and retained more from Suzy in two hours than from two years of business studies. Her no nonsense, no jargon approach is a winner.
I was highly impressed with her methodology and thinking especially since she doesn't come from our industry. The information she imparted is invaluable and we realised quickly that we needed to learn the language of business. Everything Suzy said was insightful and made sense.
Daniel Licudi, Teacher & Entrepreneur
Suzy is one of the most knowledgeable, experienced individuals I have ever met.
Always ready with an opinion and her famous 'red' pen, she is willing to work with you and brings the best out of people.
Interview preparation, CV revision and developing business ideas are areas which I have worked on with Suzy where she provided her expertise and guidance.
I would definitely recommend her.
