Shannon Russo / Kinetix
Who is Shannon Russo? Well…..she’s the CEO of Kinetix. She’s got a background as a finance executive with companies such as Spherion, W.R. Grace, M&M/Mars, Inc., and Kidder, Peabody & Co. She rode the corporate wave. She had a big expense account. Then she opted out to do her own thing and founded Kinetix with the goal of creating a firm that could help growing companies get the talent they need to compete. She thought she’d get more sleep by running her own firm. She was wrong. Luckily, that’s not contagious.
