President Bush has nominated John Cox to be chief financial officer at the Housing and Urban Development Department. If approved by the Senate, Cox would replace Carin Barth, who left HUD last April. James Martin has been acting deputy CFO since October.
Cox, who currently is a consultant, previously served as vice president, chief financial officer and chief accounting officer for BMC Software Inc. of Houston. Earlier in his career, he was tax manager for Ernst & Young LLP of New York.
Cox earned his bachelor's degree from Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas.
