Terese Farmen

Cox Communications
Total Rewards Manager


Lindy Hop dancer by night, social activist and Human Resources Total Rewards Manager by day, Terese Farmen, when not traveling to this city or that, lives happily in San Diego with her partner and teenage daughter. She currently works for the Human Resources Department at Cox Communications for the Total Rewards team. She is generally seen as one of the “good guys” for her influence over rewards and recognition for the company which helps keep her in good spirits when she needs to make the harder decisions on salary and bonus eligibility for internal promotions and new hires to the company. She loves working for Cox, and through the company’s charitable giving program, she serves on the board of the Anti-Defamation League and is the Chair of the Education Committee and the No Place for Hate program for San Diego. Aside from her hobbies as a writer, teacher and performing artist, you might also find Terese training for half marathons on various Southern California trails with her Mini Golden Retriever and Giberian Shepsky.
