Russ grew up in the Bay of Plenty before heading to Waikato University and completing a Bachelor of Management Studies in 1991. Since completing his degree, Russ has gained 27 years of accounting experience in a range of private and public sector roles.
Prior to 2006 Russ worked within large multinational companies in New Zealand, Australia and London. During this time he developed a strong skillset in commercial analysis, reporting, planning, due diligence and cash flow management. These skills were developed across a range of industries including agriculture, shipping and logistics, healthcare and ultimately a strong focus in tourism. A passion for strong commercial thinking and support has seen Russ presenting regularly on how to commercialise opportunities as well as tourism activity from start up to rejuvenation.
In 2006 Russ decided to move his family back to the sunny Bay of Plenty. This has allowed him to utilise his skills assisting a range of clients.
Russ brings a sound commercial background and skillset, inclusive of due diligence, strategic thinking, performance evaluation and business planning for success.
Russ and his wife have two children and are based in Matua where they have both been heavily involved in a range of school and sporting community roles.
