Technology Council of Pa. names new leader

By ,

The Technology Council of Pennsylvania today named a Harrisburg entrepreneur as its new president.

Chuck Russell will take over the Harrisburg-based organization, and he will assume all of the duties of former president and CEO David Bonsick, according to a council news release.

Glenn Lytle, chairman of the board of directors of the council, said Bonsick is leaving the council to pursue other interests. Officials from the council declined to say whether the position is full-time and what Russell's compensation would be.

"Chuck brings a level of knowledge and expertise to this position that will benefit member companies of all sizes," said Glenn Lytle, chairman of the board of directors of the council. "Chuck's entrepreneurial background and economic development expertise will be an asset to this organization. The board of directors looks forward to working with Chuck to advance the mission and vision of the (council) for many years to come."

Russell is a senior partner at Harrisburg's Collective Intelligence, a systems integrator and solutions provider for private and government clients.

In the news release from the council, Russell is described as a "respected entrepreneur" with expertise in economic development, analytics, big data and mobile technologies.

Russell also is the founder of the two-year-old Startup Week Harrisburg, an entrepreneurial seminar held in September.

The 20-year-old council aids and helps grow the technology industry in the state. In 2013, it moved into a new office at the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology.
