Brian Cox

Managing Director, Executive Search

As Managing Director, Executive Search, Brian brings a unique store of knowledge from his former senior leadership roles with Franklin Covey and CSX Corporation. Having led the Talent Acquisition and Organizational Development functions for a $4 billion private equity owned organization, Brian has a uniquely qualified perspective on crafting overall Human Resource strategies including Talent Acquisition, Employee Relations, OD and Learning & Development. 

In this role with eviCore Healthcare/Express/Cigna, Brian led a Talent Acquisition team responsible for hiring 1600 employees per year, then eventually focused on an RPO model for volume-based hiring. He also led an Organizational Development team responsible for the development of 500 managers/directors/vice presidents. His departure from corporate leadership to direct executive recruiting in the human resources practice for Blue Rock Search has provided a valuable injection of insightful industry specific knowledge to our team.

Fun Facts About Brian

Brian's Charity of Choice

“In 2019, one of my family’s best friends relied on the Ronald McDonald House to stay near her preemie baby because the hospital they needed to be at was in a different state. Without this amazing charity, they would not have been able to afford a place to stay for 4 months while their child was in the NICU.”
