Russell Room Remodelers was opened for business in 1989 as "Bill Brinkman Home Improvements." Bill Brinkman had a business degree, a passion for construction, and experience in home building. His desire was to build a remodeling business.
Jeff Russell had just finished college in 1990 and was in need of a job. He knew that Bill had started a home improvement business and discussed with his wife how he might be able to work with Bill. Shortly after praying together about his need for a job, the phone rang. It was Bill, "Jeff, I don't know what you are doing this summer, but I was wondering if you would like a job?" Jeff replied, "You are the fastest answer to prayer I've ever had, I'd love to."
Jeff was Bill's first employee, and they worked so well together that the following year they formed Brinkman Russell. They continued to work together for 16 years building a strong remodeling company with an excellent reputation. In 2006, Bill moved on to other opportunities, selling his share of the business to Jeff, and they remain friends to this day.
