SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (BRAIN) — Robert ("Bob") C. Fox Jr. has retired from Fox Factory Holding Corp.'s board of directors, effective Aug. 29.

Bob Fox founded Fox Factory in 1978 and served as CEO and chief engineering officer at different times. Since 2008 he has served as a director.

Fox earned a bachelor of science in physics from Santa Clara University in 1961, and an MBA from Santa Clara University in 1968. He began developing motocross suspension in 1974 and in 1976, Kent Howerton won the 500cc AMA Motocross National Championship on his AirShox and Marty Smith followed with another 500cc Championship for Fox in 1977. These championship wins created a demand for Fox suspension and Fox Factory was born the following year.

"On behalf of our board of directors and management team, I would like to thank Bob for all his contributions during his tenure as a director on our board," said Larry L. Enterline, Fox's current CEO. "His keen business insight and unparalleled passion for the brand he founded will be greatly missed."

Enterline continued, "I'd also like to thank him on behalf of the entire organization for his relentless pursuit of innovation that built the company that we all have the pleasure to be a part of and is still alive at Fox today."
