Meet The TeamPartner - Boston
Russ is a Partner in the investment banking group at AGC Partners focused on Cyber Security and Defense Technologies. Before joining AGC, Russ began his investment banking career in the technology banking group at Jefferies & Co. and has advised on more than 100 completed strategic advisory and capital raising assignments. Before banking, Russ was a US Air Force Officer managing the acquisition of intelligence and information warfare systems for the Intelligence Community, and performed cyber vulnerability assessments of Air Force electronic systems.
Russ earned an M.B.A. in Finance and Accounting from the Wharton School of Business, an M.S. in Operations Research from Northeastern University and a B.S. in Operations Research from the US Air Force Academy.
AGC was invaluable in raising Foreground’s profile with potential buyers, and in conducting a rapid, intense and highly effective process when strategic interest arose. By leveraging relationships across both the Defense Intelligence community and enterprise security, AGC was able to find the right home for my company in Raytheon, in a deal that both sides view as a huge win. Russ Workman actively led a strong team that was committed to my success and made it happen with crisp execution and great advice. This outcome would not have happened without AGC and it certainly wouldn’t have been as successful as it was – Russ and his team have earned my highest recommendation.
We engaged AGC because of its track record, deep market knowledge, and relationships. That perspective proved invaluable to the Board and a mission-oriented shareholder group in forming a consensus to divest Exostar from joint venture to private equity ownership. I can't speak more highly of the tenacity and professionalism that Maria, Russ and the AGC team brought to the table every day to advance our strategic interests. We are excited at the prospect of moving forward under Thoma Bravo's stewardship, and the deal absolutely would not have happened without AGC. AGC has earned my highest recommendation.
Russ, Ben and the AGC team provided the expertise and energy to close a highly complex asset sale to our top competitor, Experian. Across the 12 month duration, AGC helped us overcome an endless series of obstacles and never lost sight of what was best for AllClear ID. I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome and a can’t say enough about the work ethic and skill that Russ brings to the table. There is absolutely no quit in AGC.
