In 1898 James M Cox borrowed $26,000 and purchased the Dayton Evening News to create “The People’s Paper”. In 1939, then Ohio Governor Cox purchased The Atlanta Journal and WSB radio setting a stake in the ground in Atlanta that remains today. Cox Enterprises, still privately held, employs around 55,000 employees in 300 separate businesses. In 2018 member Alex Taylor, great-grandson of Governor Cox became CEO of Cox Enterprises and has infused an even greater sense of purpose across the $21 Billion company. Join us as Alex and member Kevin Riley, Editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, discuss Cox’s approach to environmental sustainability and the search for Cox Enterprise’s next generation of growth.
