With more than 25 years of experience in marketing and advertising, Russell is well into his second stint as Chief Financial Officer at Palisades MediaGroup, where he finds the entrepreneurial spirit alive and well. Throughout his career, Russell has served as CFO for some well-known creative and media agencies in Southern California, including The Cimarron Group, and The Phelps Group. A graduate of Occidental College, Russell also holds an MBA from USC and a law degree from Southwestern University School of Law. He brings his experience and education to bear in his strategic and tactical financial role, as well as in general management, human resources, and transaction structuring and negotiations.

An advocate of staying healthy, Russell works out regularly at the gym and tracks his daily activity on his Fitbit. On the weekends, you might very well find him cooking up a gourmet meal at his home in Palos Verdes.
