PHILADELPHIA PA--The Office of Catholic Education (OCE) and the Faith in the Future Foundation are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Francis E. Fox as the 5th President of Archbishop John Carroll High School in Delaware County. Mr. Fox is a proud graduate of Archbishop Carroll, Class of 1977. He has served on Archbishop Carroll’s advisory board since 1997 and was the chairman of that body from 2000-2011.
Mr. Fox said, “It is with great humility and excitement that I accept the position of President of Archbishop John Carroll High School. My decision to serve was certainly based on my love for the school and previous years of involvement on the Board. In an equally important way, it was also influenced by, the recent appointment of Chris Mominey as Chief Operating Officer at the Office of Catholic Education and the creation of the Faith in the Future Foundation. Carroll has felt their support and empowerment over the past several months, and I believe now is the perfect time to offer my expertise and professional skills to the Archdiocese and Archbishop Carroll on a full-time basis.”
Mr. Fox brings over 30 years of leadership experience to Archbishop Carroll. In 1995, he founded Fox Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc., a full service development, brokerage and property management company. He also served as consultant to the City of Hercules, California during the disposition of a city owned $200 Million redevelopment portfolio, which included retail, multi-family, residential and industrial properties. Most recently, Mr. Fox was associated withNewmark Grubb Knight Frank, a global real estate service firm, as Senior Managing Director of its Philadelphia regional industrial team.
Christopher Mominey, the new Chief Operating Officer and Secretary for Catholic Education for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said of the appointment, “21st century Catholic schools need strong executive leadership coupled with committed board members who can articulate a strategic vision. In Frank Fox we have found both qualities. As a long-time board member, business leader and as a member of the Class of 1977, Frank brings a wealth of knowledge, passion and dedication to the Carroll community. The role of the President in a Catholic high school is critical to the success of fund development, alumni engagement, and community relations. Without a doubt, Frank will be an example to all of our stakeholders at Carroll, and beyond, that we are serious about the growth and sustainability of Catholic education here in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.”
Mr. Fox holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Management from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. He is a parishioner of Saint Denis Parish in Havertown, Delaware County.
