Fox Factory Holding Corp. announced that Robert C. Fox, Jr. retired from its Board of Directors on Aug. 29. The Board of Directors intends to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Fox’s departure in due course.

“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 chief executive officer. “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.”

Robert C. Fox, Jr. is the founder of FOX’s namesake company and current operating subsidiary, Fox Factory, Inc., and has served as a director of the Company since January 2008. He served as Chief Executive Officer of Fox Factory, Inc. from its inception in February 1978 until January 2008, and from January 2008 to June 2009, he served as Chief Engineering Officer of the Company. Mr. Fox earned a BS in Physics from Santa Clara University in 1961, and an MBA from Santa Clara University in 1968.

In 1974, Bob Fox set out on a quest to redefine motocross suspension believing that there had to be a better solution. In 1976, Kent Howerton won the 500cc AMA Motocross National Championship on Bob’s AirShox and Marty Smith followed with another 500cc Championship for FOX in 1977. These championship wins created a demand for Bob’s suspension and Fox Factory was born the following year.
