Drawing on his experience as a roll-up-the-sleeves political operative on the local, county, state legislative and congressional level in New Jersey and an award-winning direct mail consultant for candidates in multiple states, Chris Russell opened his own firm in February 2009 with one goal in mind: Taking on and winning tough races for Republican candidates.
Since then, Chris has also branched into non-partisan, corporate work, helping to steer clients to victory in public referendum campaigns and producing direct mail, as well as print and digital advertising that cuts through the clutter and moves public opinion.
A former campaign manager who has seen campaigns from literally every angle since graduating in 1995 from Temple University in Philadelphia, Chris doesn’t take the cookie-cutter approach to campaigns, preferring instead to provide customized strategic, tactical and media communications advice for his clients that best fits their individual needs and strengths.
Chris has won numerous Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) and Reed Awards from Campaigns & Elections Politics Magazine for his work, as well as the coveted “Rising Star” award from Campaigns & Elections Politics Magazine as one of the Top 25 political professionals under the age of 35.
Chris has regularly been named one of New Jersey’s top Republican consultants by PolitickerNJ.com, and appears as a regular guest analyst on News 12 New Jersey’s Power & Politics, and NJTV’s NJ Today Political Roundtable.
Chris lives with his wife, Michelle, and daughters Emma and Alyssa, in Jackson, NJ. Chris and Michelle also founded the Caitlin Elizabeth Russell Foundation in 2006 in honor of their firstborn daughter, who passed away from complications of premature birth at the age of 4 months. Since its foundation, Caitlin’s Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help premature babies and their families.
