Chairman, Inglefield Ogilvy & Mather Caribbean
Russ worked in three of London’s top advertising agencies before co-founding his own, Still Price Court, which is still regarded as the fastest growing agency of all time, going from no clients, offices or money to £168m turnover in eight years, making it into a Top-10 ad agency. He sold the agency, then worked as a writer, producer and director on literally thousands of hours’ worth of films, TV series and commercials. Russ moved back into advertising as Creative Partner of Ogilvy London, and then Chairman of Ogilvy Caribbean. In 2014 the Cabinet appointed Russ to lead the team that created Pure Grenada.
Russ’ idea to create the Music Festival came whilst sitting in the studio with Dieter listening to Sabrina Francis recording “Sweet Grenada” for the Pure Grenada launch film, and realising that such wonderful musical talent as we have in Grenada needs to share the stage with international stars.
