Scott Russell

Director of Operations

Scott is a born and raised Calgarian and has been working at the Calgary JCC since April 2009. After graduating from Mount Royal he started his career with the JCC as a personal trainer and gradually took on more administrative and supervisory responsibilities. Over time, he progressed from Fitness Coordinator to Health and Wellness Program Manager to his current position of Director of Operations. Scott is a passionate leader leaning on his strengths as a critical thinker, problem solver, and strong collaborator. He always strives to continue learning and growing both personally and professionally, and is currently completing his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in Community Economic Development through the Shannon School of Business at Cape Breton University. As a “locavore”, he enjoys supporting the local food and coffee industry whenever he is not at work or in school. At the moment, Scott’s favourite drink is an oat milk latte from Monogram!
