Michael Foux Promoted to EVP, CFO at The Perkiomen School

                The Perkiomen School Headmaster Mark A. Devey has announced the promotion of Lehigh Valley native Michael C. Foux to executive vice president for finance and business development, CFO, effective immediately. Foux will continue to serve as associate headmaster of the school.

                In this newly-created role, Foux will oversee a number of external relationships, including business and mentoring partnerships alongside Perkiomen's Entrepreneur Institute, summer programming, and all co-curricular activities at the school. He will work to expand the school's presence in the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

                "Perkiomen continues to break ground as a burgeoning independent school," said Devey. "In order for us to continue to be courageous and make the systematic changes that will create the best possible foundation for our students' future, I needed a partner to join me in pushing the envelope. I sought a veteran, forward thinker whom I could give the flexibility and latitude to frequently be off campus building new relationships within accessible local communities and overseeing the development of new innovative programs."

                "As a wise, affable, experienced CFO from the Lehigh Valley with a tremendously successful background in a variety of high-level management positions in media, marketing and publications, I went from saying to myself, 'We need someone just like Mike to – we need Mike.' I cannot think of anyone better prepared to share in the voice of the future of Perkiomen. I rely on highly capable Associate Head Carol Dougherty to stay focused on daily operations, which allows me to set Mike free to focus on the future projects. We have built a powerhouse team at Perkiomen that strengthens our present programs while building a successful, sustainable future."

                Foux joined The Perkiomen School in 2008 with more than 25 years of experience in business media and marketing, including 20 years at The Morning Call, a top-100 newspaper located in the Lehigh Valley. Most recently he was the vice president of circulation and consumer marketing, and also served as associate publisher of The Chronicles, The Morning Call's weekly newspaper operation, the chief information officer, and a variety of management positions in operations and technology.

                "This is an exciting time at The Perkiomen School with the introduction of the Entrepreneur Institute and the overall effort to personalize the learning experience for each of our students with a mix of traditional and innovative courses," said Foux. "I'm excited to help shape this and to reconnect with my roots in the Lehigh Valley."

                Foux earned his Bachelor of Science in computers and information systems from King's college and received a Master's degree in business administration from Lehigh University. He is a graduate of Leadership Lehigh Valley, and has served on the board of the Allentown YMCA and the Allentown Urban Observatory, the President's Council of DeSales University, the board of the Boy Scouts Minsi Trails Council, and as the President of the Allentown Art Museum Board of Associates. He is currently active in the Upper Perkiomen Chamber of Commerce.

                Along with Foux, current Perkiomen Director of Facilities Jason Smith and Accounting Analyst Disleiny Rubiera will be expanding their roles to include summer programming at the school.
