As RedRover Sales & Marketing Strategy’s Senior Account Manager, Josh works closely with clients and our internal team to deliver key results on marketing strategies, ensuring alignment across all levels. With a background in graphic design and over a decade in marketing, Josh’s experience marries creativity with an analytical approach to plan and execute effective marketing campaigns.
Josh began his career as a graphic designer creating signage, logos, brochures, and other branded elements for a national retail chain. During that same time, he enrolled in graduate school at the University of Memphis for his Master of Business Administration degree. Upon completion of his MBA, Josh moved into a management role within the marketing department where he built his marketing team and worked with key leaders developing strategy to drive new business. Josh’s ultimate goal was bridging his love of art and design with practical business and marketing knowledge to propel his career into one that encompassed both. Over the last 12 years, Josh has worked at honing his skills to become a subject matter expert.
Outside of work, Josh enjoys spending time with his family. With 3 sons, 2 dogs and 1 cat, there is never a dull moment in the Russell abode. Josh loves sports and is a devout fan of his alma mater, Mississippi State, but still pulls for the local home team, the Memphis Tigers. He also loves music and spending time playing in his family jam band on holidays and weekends as well as going to concerts and exposing his kids to new (and old) music. Josh also enjoys cooking and is a self-proclaimed grill master.
