Director, Co-Head of Europe
‟The oil and gas industry has seen many economic cycles. Energy transition makes this one different. Today’s fundamental challenge for Oil & Gas companies is to do two things at once: 1) Be among the strong who survive. 2) Be among the innovators who thrive. My passion is working with clients to meet this challenge – in ways that deliver measurable, bankable and lasting results.”
Russ has extensive experience in consulting and technology research. He co‑leads Partners in Performance’s European Region and our global Oil & Gas and Energy Transition Practices and also serves electric utility clients. He has been a leader in Partners in Performance for more than 12 years and has led numerous performance improvement engagements around the world, in upstream and downstream conventional and unconventional oil & gas; energy transition for both large energy producers and users; and conventional and unconventional electricity generation, transmission and distribution.
Before joining Partners in Performance, Russ was a senior consultant at McKinsey & Company, a Research Director at Forrester Research, and helped build several start‑ups. He has served clients across Europe, Australasia, North America and Africa.
Russ is passionate about helping his clients deliver measurable results, by answering such questions as: How do we deliver real value? How do we innovate? And, how do we do both faster and more productively? He believes high performance is ultimately about making sure you have the right people making the right decisions, at the right times and with the right information – and then ensuring clear accountabilities and vigorous follow through.
