Nick Cox brings three decades of experience in facility operations and management to his role as Director of Engineering for static facilities on Fortune 100 financial services company.
Mr. Cox started his career as an apprentice electrician working for several small electrical contractors in Delaware and Pennsylvania. He joined the DuPont Company in 1983 as a project electrician, and worked his way up into a Project Management role, overseeing the final phases of the construction of a 1 million-sq.-ft. suburban office campus.
In 1994, as DuPont was downsizing, Mr. Cox was offered an opportunity with Large Financial Institution. There he managed the operation and maintenance of the Regional headquarters, which consisted of 5 million sq. ft. of Class-AA office space, data center space, production, print operations and call centers.
In 2006, the two Financial institutions merged, and the facility management and operations responsibilities were outsourced to Trammell Crow Company, which was later acquired by CBRE. Mr. Cox transitioned to the outsourced model, and proceeded to hold several regional and portfolio wide management positions on the account.
In 2014, Mr. Cox was promoted to Director of Engineering. He manages the operation and maintenance team, which consists of 137 professionals who cover 15 million sq. ft. in 84 facilities across eleven US states, and LATAM. He is highly regarded for an approachable management style, strong communication skills, deep technical knowledge and experience.
