Executive Summary: Russ Capps, CAE

Russ Capps, CAE, chief financial officer of the Association of Corporate Counsel, tells us his goals and daily routine.

On my desk right now

WAY too much paper, The Economist, the latest Associations Now

If I weren’t doing this, I’d …

… be a professional singer, or maybe a rock star.

What I do when I’m not at work

Work out (not nearly enough), do crosswords, and enjoy wine with my fiancé, Ken.

My 3 goals for 2013

  1. Get out of the weeds; be more strategic minded.
  2. Do more public speaking at association/nonprofit industry events.
  3. Read 12 or more books.

Who I’m following on Twitter

A bunch of ASAE peers, and for fun, Lady Gaga.

The best advice I ever got

Don’t be afraid to fail, because that’s when you really learn.
