Success, service and St. Louis are three key areas that help define the life of Bob Fox.
Embracing the spirit of entrepreneurial vision, in 1984 he founded NewSpace Closet Interiors – the first of its kind in the St. Louis area. A commitment to community and the Saint Louis University ideal of serving others, Bob and his wife, Build-a-Bear founder Maxine Clark, established a foundation to support areas vital to regional prosperity and growth in the St. Louis area. From a cardiac intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital to a host of educational institutions and the St. Louis Zoo Foundation Board, Bob’s caring spirit shines through.
In 2009, Bob responded to a community need for a health and wellness center serving new Hispanic immigrants, by founding Casa de Salud, a collaboration between existing community health providers, Saint Louis University, Washington University and 40 other community agencies.
