WHA is proud to share with our members that EHRA has made Jim Russ the President and Chief Executive Officer.
He is a graduate of A&M University and a fourth-generation leader at EHRA. Before his promotion Russ was a Principal overseeing Construction Phase Services, Surveying and Mapping Services, Business Development and Marketing Services. Ask anyone at his company and they will tell you “He understands the importance of producing quality products with honesty and integrity; something he has committed himself to do on a daily basis.”
Russ serves as the Chairman of WHA’s Sustainable Infrastructure Committee and is one of the newest members of WHA’s Board of Directors. He is always willing to encourage the next generation of leaders by actively participating at WHA’s Rising Leader events. Russ is one of the hardest working people you will ever meet and is consistently helping WHA come up with new and exciting ideas to engage our members.
EHRA Practice Area Leader, Andy Palermo, had this to say when asked about Russ’ recent promotion. “EHRA is a great place to work, and Jim has been an essential part of making the firm what it is today. I’m excited for EHRA as Jim steps into the CEO role. He is one of the most dedicated and hardest working people I know, and I truly believe he will lead the firm to many more years of continued success.”
WHA is proud to announce his promotion and are honored to have him involved in our organization. Congratulations Jim!
