Success = Opportunity + Preparation + Passion. The opportunities in the electric utilities industry today are ‘once in a lifetime’ in scale and complexity, as the industry undergoes a fundamental transformation, thanks to several interdependent forces: renewables/decarbonisation, distributed generation, storage, net/smart metering, smart grids, digitisation/’big data’, and new conservation techniques, just to name a few.
Working around the world, starting in early 90’s, Russ has followed his ‘passion’ and ‘prepared’ by helping electric utilities improve their performance in generation, transmission and distribution, sustaining and expansion capital management, and field force and construction productivity – all with a focus on real, rapid and sustainable results.
Before joining Partners in Performance, Russ consulted for utilities with McKinsey, was a technology research Director at Forrester Research, and helped build several start-up technology companies. When not traveling for work or pleasure, Russ can be found running through streets and parks and on basketball and racquetball courts in local gyms or spending time with family and friends.
