Mr. Russell’s primary role has been in legal and is currently active as the Chief Legal Officer of Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC. His career however, has spanned multiple roles during his tenure in the industry including: serving on the original ratings committee that created the ESA, ESRB and ultimately E3; he has produced games, film, and television (all based on video game characters); headed Sony’s publisher relationships during the turbulent PS3 Launch; (successfully) dealt with what was at the time the largest known privacy breach; was a nemesis of hackers, appeared to assist with testimony in the Senate and the House, and has licensed balloons for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. In 2019, coming full circle, he re-joined the Entertainment Software Association and Entertainment Software Ratings Board as Sony’s representative. He holds three issued patents, has been involved in Virtual and Augmented VR since 1993. Somewhat embarrassingly, he is self-described as “the most credited man in video game history”, based on decades of receiving “Special Thanks to” credits and which he quickly adds self-depreciatingly: “is probably good evidence of a misspent career.”
Russell oversees a worldwide legal group specializing in interactive entertainment and in such diverse fields as computer and entertainment law, technology licensing, sports and character licensing, intellectual property and general business law. Russell's legal career has included all aspects of video games, game consoles, television and theatrical production, patent and copyright litigation, technical asset licensing, and complex litigation. From 2005 to 2008 Russell served as head Sony Computer Entertainment’s SVP of Third Party Relations and Developer Support, managing licensed publisher relationships and strategic product planning in support for all PlayStation platforms, but most notably for the 2006 launch of the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) entertainment system. In 2015 Russell served as the interim head of Human Resources at Sony Interactive Entertainment, and most recently in 2016, Russell, was the credited Executive Producer of Ratchet and Clank, the Movie, a film based on a game that was based on the movie.
Prior to joining Sony, Russell held the positions of Corporate Counsel and Director of Legal and Business affairs for Sega of America, Inc.
