"Russell was appointed Chairman of the Board of Governors on 20th June 2012. After starting his career as a business economist for Unilever and then moving into strategy and planning consultancy at Deloitte Haskins & Sells, Russell moved into retail management in order to put the theory into practice. Initially he joined Kingfisher, where he held a number of roles including Deputy Finance Director for Comet and was involved in its M+A team before joining the Board of Safeway as Fresh Food Director. At Safeway he played a key part in the turnaround of the business, which led to an invitation to run Dollond and Aitchison opticians, ultimately taking that business through to a sale. Following that he joined Blacks Leisure Group as CEO leading that business for three years.
"Russell is currently Chairman of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic and District Hospital; Hunters Moor Neuro Rehabilitation Limited and the Multiple Sclerosis Trust. He is also a Trustee of the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum."
