Meet Cody Cox

There’s a new face around here! Through our partnership with the Missouri Small Business Development Center and MU Extension, we’ve grown our business consulting team.

Cody Cox has joined the team as a Regional Small Business Consultant focused on helping business owners start and grow their businesses.

Cody previously worked as a consultant in the veterinary industry. As the former owner of a veterinary practice appraisal and brokerage business, he’s familiar with the concerns of small business owners and knows how to help them find solutions.

With a degree in Business from Drury University, Cody is a self-proclaimed “numbers guy.” He likes to help people understand profitability, and feels strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to open a business. His main goal is to teach business owners to work smart and reduce their stress levels.

Learn More About Cody

We love some Q&A! Learn more about Cody below.

What do you like to do in your free time?

“I love to ride bicycles. I have a lot of different kinds. I have a new e-bike (with battery-powered assist) that is super fun. I ride them all—gravel, road, mountain bikes, all of them. I’ve been riding since I was about 14.”

What is your favorite or dream vacation?

“I think I took it! I went to Alaska for two weeks, and would love to go back for an entire summer. I want to drive up through the Canadian Rockies in a van, and live day-to-day—really immerse myself fully in the experience. Alaska is amazing.”

What type of business are you most excited to be working with?

“I’m not sure there’s a type—I worked exclusively with veterinarians for a long time, so I’m excited to be exposed to a variety of businesses through this opportunity. I’ve been looking for new stimulation and I’m excited to add diversity where I’m not doing the same thing every day.”
