A University of Wisconsin-Stout graduate and former instructor has been hired as director of the Alumni Association office and as a development officer for the Stout University Foundation, according to Mark Parsons, vice chancellor for University Advancement and Marketing.
Juliet Fox, most recently co-owner of a consulting and product design company, “brings a wealth of experiences to this key role within University Advancement,” Parsons said.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Juliet’s breadth of global business and community success to lead our alumni program and build philanthropic relationships with UW-Stout alumni and friends,” Parsons continued. “She has an exceedingly strong background of accomplishment in event management, business development, community engagement and leadership.”
“I am delighted to be back at my alma mater as the alumni director at UW-Stout,” Fox said. “To be working for such an impressive global group of alumni is an honor. I feel like I am coming home.”
Concerning her goals for the position, Fox said, "As the world of alumni networks changes, we are seeing a desire for alumni to be engaged in new ways. I am eager to connect with our alumni to tailor programs, services and engagement toward their particular interests and needs."
Fox was a senior lecturer at UW-Stout from 2000-09 in the department of apparel and communication technologies. She went on to Future IQ Partners as co-owner and chief executive officer. The company works with organizations and other entities around the country on planning, managing change and social networking.
For example, Fox helped organize a global think tank on Building Sustainable Regional Communities in Today's World at Windsor Castle in England in 2012.
Fox is a former member of the Dunn County Board of Supervisors and was the founder and executive director of Visioning Dunn County.
Fox succeeds Sue Pittman, who retired after more than 15 years at University Advancement.
Fox has a Bachelor of Science degree from UW-Stout in business administration. She has a master’s degree from Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, Calif.
