With life long ties to Maine, board position is a natural fit
Cox Capital Management Founder Bill Cox recently joined the Kennebunk Land Trust Board of Directors. Bill has life long ties to Maine. His family has spent summers on Drake’s Island in Wells since 1963. More recently, Bill became a full-time Maine resident during 2019. The Kennebunk Land Trust was founded in 1972 and is currently one of Maine’s oldest Land Trusts. The Trust maintains 3,400 acres of forests, fields, and waterways. This acreage covers some of the most beautiful land in the United States. Bill views his role as a way to give back to the community that gave him so much joy throughout this life. “Maine holds a special place in my heart – especially the Kennebunk area. My hope is for others to experience the same beauty and awe that I did growing up,” said Bill. This philosophy matches up perfectly with the Land Trust, whose mission it is to preserve the natural ecosystems and beauty of the land they maintain.

It is with great pleasure to announce that effective January 1, 2020, Ethan Brown is now a Partner at Cox Capital Management. Brown joined the firm over five years ago. He completed an MBA from UMass Lowell with a specialization in finance. Brown brings a host of analytical abilities to the firm.

Brown also gave credit to those that influenced him along his journey, including his former finance professor Tunde Kovacs (who is now on CCM’s Investment Committee), and his mentor at Cox Capital – Bill Cox, to whom he attributes much of his success.
