An out-of-the-box thinker with 30 years' experience in design and construction, Russell specialises in managing wide-ranging, complex programmes from inception through all phases of delivery.
He's skilled in bringing together contractors, engineering consultants and technical specialists to ensure optimal project delivery and he's comfortable facilitating community groups.
His clients are typically composite government and institutional user groups dealing with broad city-changing issues—increasing workforces, cycleways, smart city initiatives, and safety—and are often seeking fund optimisation to benefit the wider community.
Russell's driven by working with teams with diverse perspectives. This way, he gets the best and most robust outcomes, such as in the St. Louis Project Connect. As senior manager on this neighbourhood revitalisation programme, Russell and his team unfold new ways to improve nine neighbourhood communities while attempting to relocate the next National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency West Headquarters to this Missouri city.
Outside of work Russell dabbles in oil painting, photography, and furniture making.
