Chicago-headquartered (FOX), a global network of single family offices, wealthy individuals and their advisors, has appointed Peter Roach as its market leader for Australia and New Zealand.

Roach will succeed Melissa James, who will continue as co-facilitator of the FOX family enterprise council meetings, FOX said in a statement yesterday. 

Roach was previously chief executive of the Fairfax family office, Cambooya Services, from 2000-2012. During that period he was also non-executive director of Rural Press Limited, Landis+Gyr and various other boards associated with the family’s media and private equity interests.

In addition to Cambooya Services, Roach has worked with one of Australia’s largest banks to expand its family office services.

In his new role, he will be responsible for expanding the FOX membership base in the region, as well as advising families and advisors on global best practices. His predecessor James will continue to jointly run the twice annual FOX family enterprise council meetings with him.

“ experience will benefit our members and attract new members to our council peer group,” said Alexandre Monnier, president of FOX.
