  • Bob Akmenkalns: “Russ not only has an innate ability to identify problems, but also has a laser like focus and ability to find the solution to those problems.  He has a talent for thinking things through, and takes a common sense approach to problem solving.  With his high moral and ethical values, Russ’ character is beyond reproach.  In addition, his creativity and attention to detail have always made him an asset to the company.  Russ has always been willing, and able, to go above and beyond to get things done. …I strongly recommend Russ to any employer who is looking for a loyal, dedicated, highly motivated and capable individual.”  (PDF)

  • Gary Fountain: His level of competency and professionalism in the financial arena is superior to anyone that I have ever worked with during my career. Colorado Container went through two major conversions of the software used to manage our business during the time we worked together. Russ’ hard work and attention to detail minimized the challenges of the conversions and allowed us to avoid interrupting the high level of service our customers expect. ”  (Word File, PDF)
  • Matt Hughes: Aside from the personal guidance that he’s offered, Russ is one of the most pragmatic business thinkers with whom I’ve worked.  As a (relatively) young, eager insurance salesman, I was sure I knew everything that Colorado Container Co (CCC) needed.  I was sure that CCC just HAD to carry interruption insurance…Russ’ big picture viewpoint was eye-opening.  He was well aware of the loss exposure… But he had already planned with the company’s owners for the possibility that they could experience such an interruption… Russ was able to save CCC tens of thousands of dollars every year by retaining that risk and using the money elsewhere.  To this day I counsel business clients and prospects to remove themselves from insurance companies to whatever degree they can.  In my years working with financial leaders over many industries, Russ is the brightest that I’ve ever met.  Russ will make your company stronger.  He’ll identify problems, come up with solutions, and make sure they’re implemented.  And if you don’t need a CFO, just take him out for breakfast.  It could change your life.”  (Read the whole letter!
