W&L Alumni Named to Birmingham’s Top 40 Under 40

The Birmingham Business Journal has named two Washington and Lee University alumni to its 40 Under 40 list for 2016.

As CEO of Momentum Telecom, Bill Fox’05 has helped grow the firm into a national, industry-leading provider of business voice service, increasing its revenue by nearly 500 percent in less than three years. “Bill is a tremendous asset to our organization, and the growth we have experienced since he joined Momentum reflects the strength of his leadership,” Momentum Telecom Chair Elizabeth Pharo stated in a release posted on the company’s website.

Bill received an M.B.A. with distinction from Harvard Business School and a B.S. in business administration and accounting from W&L. He is an active volunteer with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, serving as the board president of the Alabama/NW Florida chapter.

Joining Bill on the 40 Under 40 list is Bebe Goodrich ’07, who founded Cantata Coffee in 2012 and later rebranded it as , which offers some classic specialty coffee recipes.

A politics major, Bebe worked for Rep. Rodney Alexander (LA-05) from 2007 to 2010, specializing in tax and financial policy. She then moved to Birmingham, to work for a non-profit, before launching her start-up.
