COMPANY INFO

FoxNRTH Inc.

FoxNRTH is the brain child of Chris Murray, an entrepreneur with a twist. After being the first employee in the door of a number of notable companies, what became obvious was the urgency of rapid problem solving that is needed in the first years; this urgency also re-emerges in change management. The singular focus on the business at these junctures of change often leads to ignoring the most valuable resource at hand, the diversity of perspective provided by the human beings inside and outside companies. Understanding human behaviour and the reality that all things are a product of that behaviour is the foundation of FoxNRTH.
