I live in a village in Cambridgeshire with my beautiful wife and bestest mate Lynn. I have two amazing sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and three adorable grandchildren.
I’ve worked in advertising most of my life, including twenty-nine years at international media planning and buying independent Fox Media, which I founded in 1990. I still own and operate some websites; for instance, The UK Sponsorship Database, a site which features sponsorship news and opportunities and which I launched in May 2000.
Before I started Fox Media, I worked at quite a few London ad. agencies, including Y&R, McCann-Erickson and Leo Burnett; I was a partner at Washer Fox in central London, which amongst other things relieved Saatchi & Saatchi of their IBM business, before merging with the seven agency GGK Europe network – I was Group Media Director there for a couple of years before moving to Cambridgeshire and setting up Fox Media. I’ve had quite a lot of stuff published in advertising trade journals.
Nowadays I frequently broadcast on the Periscope app., singing and playing cover versions of well-known pop songs or my own compositions. (Best to download the app. If you use a browser, Periscope seems to prefer Firefox).
I have a Facebook page for my music at https://www.facebook.com/richard.fox.223.
