able to effectively “techno-bond” with customers
Russell has that hard-to-find multi-skill combination of highly technical understanding plus deep business acumen. During the time we worked together penetrating (and Winning!) large accounts deals for CenturyLink CDN services, Russell was able to effectively ” techno-bond” with customers and drive our internal teams to deliver a winning solution by translating customer needs into competitive advantages. His problem solving skill range is wide. They go from creating a quick Python script all the way to architecting a complex and large solution for a top global gaming company! Russell also was a key voice to our development teams providing strategic feedback to keep our services competitive. We are sad to see Russell leaving our team and at the same time glad to see his career developing all the way to the BIg Leagues!
