Alexandra “Sasha” Fox was born in Kishinev, Moldova. Her immediate and extended family immigrated to the United States in the 70’s after traversing through Israel and France, finally settling in Borough Park, Brooklyn.
After graduating from the University of Hartford, she landed a job at Salomon Brothers’ Compliance Department. She then made her way onto the trading floor working in Equity Sales and Trading in various roles. Her career turned to Client Management, working as a strategic partner within Equities to help US and Global managers implement business initiatives that helped increase revenues and profitability. As the firm evolved into Salomon Smith Barney, and then eventually, into Citigroup, Alexandra left the firm after 15 years of service to work at JP Morgan. There, she helped establish its Client Management Department and worked with Sales and Trading Management through the Bear Stearns merger.
After four years at JP Morgan, Alexandra left to start up Client Management for Global Equities at Jefferies & Co where she implemented significant business, infrastructure, and technological initiatives.
As the financial landscape changed, Alexandra decided to leave Wall Street and concentrate more on her family life and the non-profit world. She currently lives with her husband, two sons and her little daughter in New Rochelle, NY.
Alexandra attended Jewish elementary and middle schools (Shulamith and Bialik) in Brooklyn; however, her family was not observant. After September 11, 2001, she met her husband, Andrew, through Aish HaTorah, and as they became more involved with the Upper West Side Jewish community, they began to live a Modern Orthodox lifestyle. In 2012, they were honored at the West Side Institutional Synagogue 91st Annual Dinner for their service to the community. They support various Jewish organizations in the US and Israel.
