Appointments, Exits At Family Office Exchange

The moves are against a backdrop of change in the organizations that represent much of the family offices and associated groups in the UHNW space in the US – and certain other nations.

Family Office Exchange, or FOX, has announced a number of appointments while also revealing that three of its management team are leaving the organization. The changes come amidst changes in the niche sector of family office networks, as shown by the Charles Schwab acquisition of Family Wealth Alliance a week earlier.

David Toth has been named as president of membership; Gaby Griffin has been appointed as managing director of council memberships – newly-created role, and Scott Muench is taking on the newly-formed role of managing director of core memberships. Kent Lawson will be FOX’s chief technology officer.

The organization, which has more than 8,000 members in 17 countries, said in a statement late last week that as part of these organizational changes, Jonathan Tunner, Scott Winget and Tony Gebely will leave the FOX management team.

Toth has been with FOX for more than eight years, most recently as interim co-president of membership; prior to this, he was a FOX member for seven years in his leadership role at PNC Financial. Griffin has been at FOX for more than three years, most recently as interim co-president of membership. Griffin, who has worked at Capital Group, LaSalle Bank, and Abbot Downing (the old UHNW business of Wells Fargo), has worked in the sector for 25 years. Muench has been at FOX for two years, and before that, spent almost 25 years at Northern Trust, serving in leadership roles in investment management, investment governance and UHNW relationship management. 

Lawson has been at FOX for almost two years, the group said.
