Wing-See Fox, a FINRA-registered securities professional, has joined Urban Futures, Inc. (UFI) as a Principal.
Previously a Vice President with Raymond James in San Francisco and an associate director of the Municipal Securities Group at UBS Investment Bank in New York, Fox also has extensive experience in nonprofit organizational management. From 2008-2014, she served as Chief Executive Officer of Prevent Blindness Northern California. Prior to that, she spent a year in West Africa as a business development consultant for African-owned small and medium-sized enterprises. She is a past Outreach Program Director for the Palo Alto Family YMCA.
Fox chose to affiliate with UFI not only because of its reputation as a strong, top-ranked municipal advisory firm but also because of its commitment to core values.
“The values that Mike Busch embodies as the leader of the company, and the trust he engenders from his clients and employees, are closely aligned with my ideals,” says Fox, who looks forward to helping UFI’s leadership strategically grow the business and continue to deliver highly valued services to clients.
For Chief Executive Officer Michael Busch, recruiting Fox to the UFI team represents the further development of a firm based on the highest ethical standards that provides unparalleled service.
“Since assuming the CEO role of the firm three years ago,” says Busch, “we have proven that we are willing to go to exceptional lengths to hire the best people. It’s been my personal experience that you’re well advised to go after the cream of the crop. As such, with each recruitment we are assembling a small team of A+ players. Given this philosophy, the key for us has always been to hire very smart people like Wing-See. She is a rising star with the same core values of the firm: commitment, passion, service excellence and results.”
Fox holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Columbia Business School, a Master of Social Work degree from Columbia University School of Social Work and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Stanford University. An active member of the Northern California Chapters of Asian Americans in Public Finance (AAPF) and Women in Public Finance (WIP), she is also a Class of 2015 LeaderSpring Fellow.
