Russ presently directs AMC’s acquisition efforts in the Pacific Northwest. He has personally identified, underwritten, and closed more than 50 separate transactions totaling more than $600 Million.
After 10 years with the Grubb & Ellis Company, during which he was promoted from the senior brokerage ranks to the position of Senior VP/National Director of Retail Marketing, Russ served as Acquisition Manager for the Alison Development Company, Director of Leasing and Acquisitions for the Fritz Duda Company, and Senior Asset Manager for Western Federal Savings Bank.
