Russel Copley

Non-Executive Director

Russell is responsible for bringing an external, independent perspective to the PAB Languages board. This involves assisting with strategy, helping develop the business and challenging the executive director. Russell actively contributes to discussions that shape our future direction, as well as our short and long-term strategy.

With a degree in Chemistry, Russell spent seven successful years with BP in a range of marketing, business and development roles across the south of the UK. This was followed by four years in business development roles at the Open University. Following six years at the University of Derby, ultimately as Business Development Director, Russell has run his own project management and business development company over the last 17 years.

Most important to Russell is the level of business integrity and ethics at PAB Languages, from the top down. He is impressed by the ‘can do’ attitude of the whole team and its willingness to help, support and engage.
