- "Basically, a city functions no differently than a company... without solid foundations, nothing works."
- —Manager Russel
Manager Russel represents the Tycoon Executives on any player-built island. He appears when a Tycoon Executive Mansion is selected.
He makes his own appearance in Mission One: Finding the Truth as the Global Trust representative offering a Tycoon settlement for building your research center. He disappears and leaves the island to you if his settlement is chosen. However, if you choose the Eco settlement, he remains as a third party and you could later take on a quest to trade with him to earn an Emergency plan.
Manager Russel is the Tycoon counterpart of Manager Zack from the Ecos.
