His clarity in thinking saved the day
With the launch of Disney+, Russ was a Solutions Architect at Lumen (then CenturyLink). The stakes were high, the issues were many, the margin for error was zero, we had to succeed. Russ was the calm within the chaos, the guy who could breakdown the problems, and help guide the team forward. His clarity in thinking saved the day many a time. On the sales side, Russ would often participate in strategy sessions. I will always remember him bringing a calm demeanor, clarity, and most of all, the ability to bring a wide range of unique perspectives to help the sales team approach the customer in a meaningful way. When Russ spoke, people listened…a true contributor!
