a leader every step of the way
Russ has been a constant in the evolution of Verizon Digital Media Services from startup to the mature video platform and content delivery network it is today. He has been a leader every step of the way. His broadcast engineering experience has helped use set the long-term technology roadmap that gave our teams clarity and focus. His quick-thinking and innovative style have kept our sales and delivery teams continuously thinking about how we can deliver value for he customer. He is a “Swiss army knife” of problem solving, able to go from code level diagnostics to large scale technology strategy planning and executive communication. I have enjoyed working with Russ immensely and my personal challenge will be to see how I can stay connected with him throughout our professional careers. He is a friend and an advisor.
