Jack Russell is the President and CEO of OneZone Chamber of Commerce. Before joining OneZone, Jack served as the President and CEO of the Westfield Chamber of Commerce. During his time as President, he grew the chamber to over 400 members and in 2017 the chamber was awarded by ICEA with the Innovation Award for their program, Chamber Innovation, connecting Westfield Washington Schools with Purdue Polytechnic.
Outside of leading OneZone, Jack serves on a variety of boards, including Carmel Youth Assistance, Good Day Carmel, and the Indiana Chamber Executive Association Board of Directors.

In this fun and energetic episode, Jack tells the story behind how Barstool Sports landed in Westfield over Indy 500 weekend; he talks about serving people, being honest with what scares you, how great leaders create other leaders (not just followers), and shares two significant moments to momentum, including the impact of his grandfather's legacy after his passing, and about navigating a new job through a global pandemic.
