Episode 25: Margie Fox of Fitz + Hen

23 May 2018

Margie Fox graduated from Tufts University in 1984: she majors in history, and was absolutely clueless about what she wanted to do with her life. 

After going back and forth with multiple ideas, Margie decided to go to the London Schools of Economics to get another “useful” degree in international history… eventually, she moved back to Boston and after  a series of ridiculous sort of jobs, she moved to DC in 1987 and got a job at Ogilvy PR. During her time at Ogilvy, she realized what she really wanted to do was public relations.

30+ years later, with stints at most major agencies in NYC, Margie founded her own agency — Maloney & Fox, with one of her best friends in 1997. After 15 years, Margie Sold the business and then went back to Ogilvy PR as the US consumer creative director/managing director.

Followed by a spectacular crash and burn stint as the global creative director at another agency, 
Margie tumbled into a stint at a jewelry wholesale manufacturer as their creative director/marketing maven. The company was sold to a Berkshire Hathaway Company and after that, she decided to start her own company, Fitz+Hen.
