By the age of 16, TEC Chair Carlos Fox had immigrated three times. An Argentinian at birth, Carlos lived in the United States and Israel before finally settling in Canada.

With an early appreciation of the diversity and challenges faced by people and businesses all over the world, Carlos launched into a truly global journey through 25+ years in the arena of high technology, doing business in more than 30 countries.

“To be at my members’ side, helping them shape their journey, is a privilege and the most rewarding experience I have ever had.”

Prior to joining TEC, Carlos began his career in the dynamic computer business with Sperry Univac. After a rapid ascent in the Hewlett Packard Canada organization, he went on to a long executive career at Sun Microsystems at the heart of the industry’s Silicon Valley in Palo Alto, California.

Returning to Canada in 1996, he settled in Ottawa, where he was a senior executive for three local global technology companies, always in sales, marketing and business development in client facing roles.

After launching his CEO group in 2004, he built a TEC Small Business and Key Executive groups by 2006. His current member companies collectively represent annual revenues of approximately $2 billion and employ more than 9000 people.

For each of his three TEC groups, Carlos strives to attract CEOs and key executives who are committed to leading successful businesses and meaningful lives. He is looking for members who are open-minded life learners, seeking balance and are generous in their desire to help others succeed.

Carlos is also a Best Practice Chair for Eastern Canada. In this leadership role he helps all Chairs in Eastern Canada (Ottawa, Quebec and Maritimes) raise their mastery level in the Art of TEC Chairing.

In His Own Words

“To be at my members’ side, helping them shape their journey, is a privilege and the most rewarding experience I have ever had,” says Carlos. “It’s like having season’s tickets at the 50-yard line of their lives, always cheering them on to achieve all they desire in business and in life.”

TEC Group Vision

Philosophy on Leadership

“It is all about having others so inspired by your vision that they will follow you, support you and overcome whatever it takes to get there.”
