The twin pillars of positivity and ambition run deep through Russell’s personal and business philosophy.
The serial entrepreneur, strategist, investor, board advisor and business leader believes strongly that we can all be successful in personal and business life through more positive behaviours and being more ambitious.
For Russell, life is not all about making money, it’s about making a difference. While he has held board leadership positions with international companies achieving turnover of more than £200m, his passion is changing the work environment and helping businesses to create inspiring and positive environments for their workforce.
A founding Managing Partner of the advisory group, Exolta Capital Partners, Russell currently holds eight non-exec and board advisory roles with fast-growing business and organisations. In addition he is a member of Scotland Trade Board chaired by Ivan, Cabinet Secretary and is regularly named in the list off “100 most influential British Entrepreneurs”.
Away from work, Russell has developed a passion for endurance events and can often be found at weekends covered in mud and clambering over obstacles.
