I am pleased to announce the promotion of Grant Cox to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
In 2011, we launched a major growth initiative, during which the number of employees in our home office has more than doubled, and our year-over-year growth rate as a firm has consistently exceeded 30%. Grant joined our firm at the beginning of that initiative five years ago, and has played a key role on the team I have tasked with driving that growth.
Before relocating his family back to Fresno from Sacramento to join our team, Grant launched the marketing communications department of one of the largest churches in Northern California. Prior to his eight years in the non-profit arena, he served in the marketing department at the corporate headquarters of Gottschalks, where he served as the primary liaison to more than 200 television and radio stations throughout the seven states in which the retailer had stores.
Early in his tenure at SCF, Grant led our team in a company wide rebranding of SCF — leveraging his industry-outsider background to restructure our marketing efforts. His fresh, innovative ideas have served as a catalyst for our team, empowering us to successfully reposition SCF as an industry-leading boutique broker/dealer and RIA.
Throughout the past ten months, Grant has played a significant role in leading the three-man team responsible for executing the major transition from our previous operational systems to Kimberlite — SCF’s proprietary technology platform built on the framework of Salesforce, the leading CRM available.
Grant holds FINRA Series 7, 24, 27 and 66 licenses, but it is more than these industry certifications that make him the right person for this position. It is his unique and multi-faceted service-, efficiency-, and marketing-centered perspective that have helped improve the effectiveness our company and the day-to-day interactions we have with advisors.
Please join me in congratulating Grant on his new position.
