Joe Fox had a 44 year career in the computer business- and was a vice president in charge of 5000 people for 7 years in the federal division of IBM. He then spent 21 years as founder and chairman of a software corporation. He started the 3 person company in the Washington D. C. area. He took it public as Template Software in 1995, and sold it and retired in 1999. With 34 years of management, his enumeration and depiction of the talents and traits that are to be recognized and rewarded at all levels of management merit perusal - and even study. He is also the author of Software and its Development published by Prentice Hall in 1982, and two paperbacks, What If in1979 and Trapped in the Organization in 1980, both published by Price Stern Sloan. His software book was translated into Russian, and his Executive Qualities was translated into Spanish. Joe Fox grew up in Brooklyn N.Y., graduated from St. John’s University in Queens, N.Y. with a degree in Mathematics, and joined IBM in 1956. Twenty years later, still in IBM, he had his book Executive Qualities published by Addison Wesley in 1976. IBM, not mentioned nor identified in the book, did not see it before publication. IBM was not identified as the venue for the management ideas and concepts. After 9 printings, the publisher discontinued the book, but it still sells in book form on the Amazon used book service. Mr. Fox frequently presented the traits, talents, trials and tribulations detailed in his Executive Qualities book several times at IBM’s Sands Point executive month-long training, and at CIA management meetings in Langley, Virginia. Mr. Fox chaired several committees for DOD during his career. This version of his book Executive Qualities is the original text with a few pages deleted. The book was preceded by his collection of quotes, and over 400 of them are in the book.
