The NCR board of directors announced July 13 it has appointed NCR editor Thomas C. Fox as the company’s new publisher. The move follows the May 26 death of NCR publisher and editor in chief Joe Feuerherd.
This is the third time the 67-year-old Fox -- who began writing for NCR in 1966 and became editor in 1980 -- will serve as NCR publisher, the second in a time of transition.
Fox will hold the position of publisher until a new, permanent publisher is chosen. With Fox’s appointment, the NCR board also announced it has begun a search for a new publisher and company CEO.
“We are grateful to Tom for his long commitment to NCR and his willingness to serve where he is needed,” said Annette Lomont, chair of the NCR board. “Tom is ‘Mr. Continuity,’ the face of NCR. He embodies everything NCR stands for -- professionalism, integrity, fairness and openness. He’s also a proven manager who has created a working environment that is collaborative and respectful.”
