Russell Merrill is the classic “local boy makes good” story come to life. Russell, who grew up in Plattsburgh, is a graduate of both Clinton Community College and Plattsburgh State University with degrees in Business Administration. Following a brief stint in manufacturing, Russell was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, serving four years in active duty before discharging honorably in the fall of 2020.
Through his lifelong friendship with lead recruiter Jared Murphy, Russell learned of the opportunities at Coryer Staffing and jumped at the chance to come aboard.
“Working at Coryer has been great. We have a friendly and supportive atmosphere, the team is fun, and it really doesn’t feel like I’m going to work every day. I like that I’m able to utilize the leadership training that sports and the military have afforded me in a career that helps both companies and people succeed.”
