Russell Bowles, Director of Operations

Russell Bowles, Director of Operations

As the leader of our Operations and Implementation team, Russell has been with LeaseQuery from the start. He knows leases, lease accounting compliance, and the LeaseQuery software platform inside and out. While working on his degree from Georgia Tech, he learned the backend of our business by interfacing with our developers as we launched our initial software platform and helped design specifications for several key enhancements. He then progressed to client side activities which include organizing, reviewing and entering leases for our very first customers, along with providing training on the platform for clients who preferred to manage their leases themselves.

Russell now has overseen the successful onboarding of over 200 clients onto the LeaseQuery platform, and is committed to ensuring our clients have a smooth onboarding experience and the platform works as advertised. When not immersed in the world of lease accounting, Russell can be found on the golf course if the weather permits.
