I'm Richard Fox!

Creative Entrepreneur LA native, devoted husband and father, pet lover, coffee addict.. Know Me Better

Hello, My Name is Richard Fox!

Richard Fox, highly motivated creative developer with an international client portfolio.

I launched my first business at 14 years old - a comic book store - which expanded to three major locations. Since that first foray into the business world as a teenager, I have launched numerous successful businesses covering a range of different industries including health care, IT, retail, and many other service-related industries. I have enjoyed multiple highly successful exits, with many of the businesses I helped to create remaining operational and prosperous decades later.

My passions are innovation, creating new, marketable products and services, and growing startups or expanding already established businesses. I always aim to work towards finding ideas which can help to improve the fast-paced world we live in today. I also thoroughly enjoy learning new skills through reading books from other successful entrepreneurs and ideologists which assist me in continuously improving my abilities to successfully create, deploy and monetize various products and services.

Work Experience Responsibilities & Achievements
2015 – Present

Responsibilities/Achievements:
Chatspin is a rapidly-growing random video chat app where users can instantly meet and develop friendships and relationships with new people from around the world. Since launching in 2015, we have grown to over one million members and have established over one billion connections. We have also launched highly successful apps on the Google Play Store and Apple Store in addition to rolling out innovative and groundbreaking features including becoming the first video chat platform to implement A/R face filters on a desktop app.

2014 – Present

Responsibilities/Achievements:
Baghunter is one of the world’s leading ultra-luxury platforms for buying, selling, consigning, and swapping Chanel and Hermes handbags. Our growing reputation for authenticity, customer satisfaction, accessibility, integrity, and quality sets us apart from other similar platforms. We have also implemented unique features for clients including a Bag Bespoke service and Bag Concierge Service.

2015 – Present

Responsibilities/Achievements:
My passion for exploring and discovering new web-based technology and related ideas led to the establishment of Investio. Our aim is to help unique, innovative, and great ideas take off online including apps, websites, and other information technology related ventures. Our expertise at marketing and scalability has assisted numerous web projects in becoming more than just a great idea and in reaching the next level.

2016 – Present

Responsibilities/Achievements:
I branched out into real estate to utilize my marketing expertise in a new industry. The rentals, sales, and development focus primarily on iconic luxury properties that have “value-add” potential across the United States. Our latest project is based on the island of Maui in Hawaii and is currently listed for rent and sale.

2013 – Present

Responsibilities/Achievements:
My interest in the finance industry led to the establishment of EthosPay – a merchant matching service which assists high-risk businesses in matching with over a dozen merchant processing bank solutions. We assess the business type, risk level, chargebacks, and transaction history for each merchant we work with to find them the best possible merchant processing solution for their needs. Our individual analysis for each merchant, customer service level and acceptance of high-risk businesses has helped us acquire numerous notable clients.

2007 – 2012

Responsibilities/Achievements:
We launched Talenthunter in 2007, an online social network dedicated to actors, models, and movie extras. Our innovation at the birth of popular social media led to the idea quickly taking off and within five years the social network had grown to more than eight million members.

2005 – 2007

Responsibilities/Achievements:
The rise of eBay led to the idea for a competitor platform which came in the form of Bidfly. The platform worked in an auction-style similar to eBay but it was free to list your items unlike on eBay which has listing fees. But unfortunately, Bidfly didn’t catch on as planned and this failure taught me extremely important lessons which I would carry into future projects that became successful.

1999 – 2005

Responsibilities/Achievements:
An early project which I am extremely proud of, ARF Development was a pioneer in the adult day health care (ADHC) industry. ADHC Centers provide healthcare, social, and activity services to low income elderly and disabled participants. Our service has been proven to reduce hospital visits and enhance the quality of life for our patients. The project became very successful and within a few years, we were operating eight centers across California. At our peak, we were servicing over one thousand participants per day. We also provided consulting services for dozens of other centers across California and beyond. Many of the ADHC Centers remain open today and still provide services a decade later to thousands of elderly and disabled participants on a daily basis.

1994 – 1998

Responsibilities/Achievements:
I launched Comic King when I was 14 years old! Initially a hobby, I grew the comic store into a chain with three locations in major malls across the greater Los Angeles area. The success of this early business led to features on multiple local news channels including the front page of the Daily News and named “One of the youngest entrepreneurs in America”.
