Russell Baskerville is Managing Director, Empired and Intergen, responsible for driving innovation and growth and engaging with the market and shareholders.
Russell is an experienced business professional with an entrepreneurial track record, having founded Tusk Technologies Pty Limited (acquired by Empired in March 2002) and Procom Solutions Pty Limited. In leading the business, Russell draws on strong commercial and corporate skills, combined with extensive experience in the strategic growth and development of technology businesses.
Since Empired’s early days, Russell and the team have had a vision to build and grow an organisation that, “Helps our customers to have an amazing experience with technology that changes the way they run their businesses. We’re here to help customers to use technology to be better at what they do and get the very best outcomes as a result.”
More than two decades on, this is still very much Empired’s key focus.
“My purpose is to continue to build an amazing company across Australia, New Zealand and Seattle that is highly respected and a great place for people to work. We have built – and are growing – a really special company that helps our customers and our people. For me, it’s as simple as that.”
