“Russ has given leadership and counsel to the Pension Fund in the transition of its board of directors from a ‘president’s council’ into a governance board, which has been crucial to success in uncertain economic times.  More recently, Russ has helped the board of directors evaluate, amend and recommit to strong governance policies.  Professional and insightful in his leadership, Russ has helped us ask the very tough and pithy questions that are never comfortable but must be confronted.
