Russell Cox President & CEO
Russell Cox is President and Chief Executive Officer of SourceOne Solutions. He founded the company in 2017, bringing more than 20 years of industry expertise, leadership and management experience.
Russell manages the overall direction of the company, facilitating sales, company goals, initiatives, as well as ensuring top-level customer experience. His passion, energy, and drive are the heartbeat of the company. Russell believes the company’s success has been and will always be based on its core values – Honesty, Integrity, Accountability and Excellence.
Russell started his career working for an electrical contractor in Battle Creek, MI. Here he managed inventory, material for projects, and purchasing for the company. Russell had a passion to expand his career, which led him to electrical distribution. His first job was working in a warehouse for a regional distributor based in Michigan. This is where he began to learn the basics of distribution, including logistics, customer service, inventory, and general product knowledge. Learning quickly who the top companies were in the industry, Russell began pursuing one of the nation’s largest electrical distributors. Nine months into his pursuit, he landed a job working in customer service. Russell spent most of his working career (approx. 17 years) building his reputation in sales and managing some of the company’s larger accounts. Through the years, Russell climbed the corporate ladder, working many positions in sales and customer service before landing a management job in St. Louis, MO, managing the lighting product segment. He later moved to Oklahoma City to manage one of the company’s failing locations. Russell spent four years in Oklahoma, helping that location to achieve record sales, consecutively, in each of those four years. After his final move back to St Louis, MO, Russell managed a team, as well as some of the largest accounts in the company. His drive and entrepreneurship ultimately led him to the creation of SourceOne Solutions.
Russell enjoys spending time with his wife and two beautiful girls. Whether it’s taking a family vacation, playing at the park, or rooting for their favorite team (Michigan Wolverines), he firmly believes family is a man’s number one priority.
