Nancy James Fox’s knowledge of negotiating and consensus building is founded upon extensive training and study of the most noted authorities on the subject. However, it is the application of these practices throughout her career that has given her unique insights to the field. Ms. Fox has held top-level management positions with both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. From 1982 – 2000 she was U.S. Managing Director for the Swiss luxury watch company, Jaeger-LeCoultre, building that company from a virtual unknown to one of the most prestigious brands in the industry. As CEO of the Museum of Latin American Art from 2000-2007, she led a capital campaign and expansion project that doubled the size of the facility and catapulted the organization to international recognition. She has also served as Executive Director for the Long Beach Symphony. Over the course of her career, her negotiation skills have returned literally millions of dollars to her employers. Her passion for the subject led to the founding of her negotiation workshop business, Negotiation Fox, in 2010 and Negotiation-4-the-Arts in 2011. She has conducted workshops at numerous venues and conferences and has been a guest on popular radio shows.
Ms. Fox earned her B.A. from Macalester College and an advanced degree from the Conservatory of Music in Frankfurt, Germany.
