Fox is the 693rd prime warden of the Goldsmiths’ Company – a new prime warden is elected every year. He is the first prime warden in the Company’s history to take office virtually, via video conference.
He became freeman of the Goldsmiths’ Company and the City of London in 1989 and became a Liveryman in 2005. He succeeds Dr Timothy Schrode to the post.
With a background in silversmithing, design and business leadership, Fox has successfully created silverware for the likes of Formula One and Rolls Royce for almost four decades. His primary focus will be championing the trade of silversmiths, jewellers and allied industries during his year in office.

He said: “This will doubtless be a challenging year for the company and for our craft, trade and allied industries whose business have virtually come to a standstill since the crisis began in March. I am deeply passionate about our industry – which I believe is world-class – and am committed to doing what I can to support it during my time as prime warden.”
