Russell is a member of the judging panel for the International Property Awards.
Russell specialises in launching hospitality and residential developments, and helps landowners achieve the best return from their property assets, while minimising development risk.
His higher profile clients include Gleneagles, Celtic Manor and Champneys in the UK, Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus, The Conrad, Algarve in Portugal and Anahita in Mauritius. He was one of a team of three from the GCA chosen to guide The Welsh Tourist Board on their 10 Year Plan for Golf in Wales leading up to The Ryder Cup.
Russell has helped a number of luxury hotels to grow their business - Rudding Park, The Athenaeum, Champneys - achieving substantial increases in Occupancy and RevPar, and has helped The Samling, Celtic Manor and Pestana Chelsea Bridge to launch their businesses.
He helped launch Ensaara Metropark, a 5,000-property new town development in Nagpur, India with a GDV of US$800m, achieving US$65m of pre-sales income at launch, sufficient to cover all general infrastructure costs and construction costs for all pre-sales properties, a 200-bed hospital and 2,000-pupil school.
Russell relaunched Pullwood Bay, a 50-acre property of 25 second homes in the Lake District, leading the sales and marketing and forming a management company, a holiday lettings operation and a co-agency with Fine & Country. The project sold out in half the time expected by the owners and the bank.
Russell lead a team of consultants, architects, quantity surveyors and interior designers to advise Oaktree Capital, the underwriters of The Conrad, Algarve, Portugal, on an exit for its stalled €80m GDV residences project. He also helped the owner of a Lake District hotel, the Linthwaite, achieve maximum value when he sold his 4 Red Star hotel.
More recently, Russell supported the business planning and sale of an 84-key, 4-star golf hotel with conference centre, spa and golf lodges in the UK and is currently launching Kimpton Kawana Bay, a $100m GDV, 215-key, 5-star condo hotel project in Grenada, and Bermudiana Beach, a $60m GDV, 115-key, 3-star condo hotel project in Bermuda.
