Russ started his career in the 80s, working with a number of major companies (including American Express and Demon Internet), in PR and marketing roles, before moving into consultancy (Landmark Consulting, Band & Brown Communications, Ascension Consulting). He has consulted for Cisco Systems, Swiss re, Sony Ericsson, BT, Evolution and Telcordia Technologies, in addition to all the finance and technology firms listed here.

Russ led the branding and communications during the MBO of Misys Asset Management Systems from Misys plc in 2003, successfully launching Rhyme Systems (a leading back office software vendor) to the market. He has worked in finance and technology markets ever since.

He graduated from Middlesex Business School in 1990 with a 2:1 Degree in Business Studies, and holds diplomas in Marketing, PR and Market Research. A Chartered Marketer, Russ is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
