For more than 35 years, Richard (Dick) J. Fox has been a trusted leader at Temple University. In 1999, the Board of Trustees, for which Dick had served as chair for 17 years, recognized him by naming the School of Business and Management in his honor.

A successful businessman, Dick is the founder and chair of The Fox Realty Companies, a building development and real-estate management company in Eastern Pennsylvania that is responsible for such landmarks as the Wachovia Center. Most recently, Dick co-founded and serves as chairman of Planalytics, a business weather intelligence company serving businesses throughout the United States.

“Temple University and the Fox School of Business are uniquely positioned to meet the needs of students and the challenges of the business world today,” says Dick. “By taking a global approach to business learning and implementing the latest technology through Alter Hall, our students are destined to succeed.”

Dick continues to advance the missions of the university by serving on the Board of Trustees’ Development Committee, and the Fox School by serving as its founding chair of the Board of Visitors. Through the full commitment of their time, treasure and talent, Dick and his wife Geraldine have been instrumental in the school’s success.
