“Be a shark. Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” This mentality fuels Fox Narayan’s competitive instincts and the challenge of surpassing expectations and goals. Whether it be sourcing candidates, studying industry trends or making strategic placements, Fox has a voracious thirst for being challenged and an aversion to auto-pilot.
In 2018, Fox came to Lucas Group as an Executive Search Consultant in the Information Technology practice based in the Chicago office. Fox specializes in souring leading IT talent for a wide range of positions within mid-tier to Fortune 500 corporations throughout Chicago and the Midwest. Hyper-competitive, he feels fulfilled when he believes he is contributing to a bigger, collective goal—one trait that allows him to make positive, mutually-beneficial recommendations for both his clients and candidates.
Fox’s career prior to Lucas Group was spent in sales and marketing. Originally, he worked on the creative and strategic side or advertising at companies including Capital One and Johnson & Johnson. He later moved to Dallas as an Account Executive at a fast-paced agency and also worked as an Account Manager at a public relations firm, overseeing construction projects before moving to Chicago. Once in Chicago, Fox spent four years with Groupon, rising to a Divisional Sales Manager, overseeing several teams on the business development side. Fox’s impressive sales background and determined and dedicated demeanor are a strong foundation for his continued success in executive recruiting.
Fox holds a BFA in Graphic Design and a BS in Strategic Advertising from Virginia Commonwealth University. In his free time, he allows all the creative and pop culture thoughts and ideas in his brain let loose. Fox also keeps his competitive skills sharp with video games, strategic board games, tennis, flag football and dominating others in Heads Up.
