20/20 Foresight appoints Alex Cox as managing director in Dallas

20/20 Foresight recently hired Alex Cox as managing director of the company’s Dallas office. Cox brings more than 15 years of executive search experience in the placements of commercial real estate professionals, collaborating with mid-level to C-suite candidates primarily focused in investment, asset management, financing and capital markets roles. “20/20 Foresight was founded on our firm’s industry knowledge, experience and expertise of real estate with many of our recruitment experts having spent time working in the field,” said Bob Cavoto, founder and managing principal of 20/20 Foresight. “The addition of Alex to our Dallas office is a major coup for our growing company thanks to his considerable background in hiring for the commercial real estate industry as well as his deep Texas roots and influential network.” Cox’s distinguished career launched after he achieved his degree in accounting from Texas Tech University. His first role was with KPMG, the fastest growing Big Four accounting firm in the U.S. There, he audited several commercial real estate companies before embarking on an entrepreneurial path that led him to recruiting. Cox founded his own commercial real estate-focused recruitment firm, EASTON | Executive Recruiting, in 2009. Over the course of his career, Cox has placed more than 500 professionals, from analysts to C-level executives. He has extensive experience covering all property types, asset classes and investment structures, with a core focus in the areas of acquisitions, development, asset management and capital markets. “My career began by auditing commercial real estate companies, which organically led to an entrepreneurial career in recruiting for the industry,” Cox said. “I am excited to apply my unique skill set to 20/20 Foresight’s expanding recruiting initiatives, where the company’s proven proprietary process, industry-leading technology and dedicated and driven team are truly unparalleled.”
