Russel Head, CEO,  Andeler Power

rheadRussel Head is CEO of Andeler Power and has over thirty years of executive level sales, general management, new business development, marketing, operational, and call center experience.

Andeler Power became a certified electricity retailer in the Texas market shortly after deregulation in 2002. It was one of only a handful of companies that have been providing electricity in Texas since deregulation.  The company provides both commercial and residential electricity products, including green options, throughout Texas.

Russ and a group of investors purchased the company in December 2012 and since that time have seen an improvement in revenue and customer base by over 100%.  The Company maintains its customer support operations in Lubbock, and prides itself as being a company with true Texas roots.

Janet White, President,  JW Speakers Agency

Janet White HeadshotJanet White did her first booking at 16 with New York City’s top deejay, “Cousin” Bruce Morrow,” and her second booking at 20 with world-renown Broadway composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim. In one-way or another and in one form or another, Janet’s been in business-to-business sales, marketing or public relations ever since.

After stints as a reporter at Newsday and Operations Assistant at WABC-AM when it was the #1 radio station in America, Janet got a Master’s degree in Urban Planning from New York University, and spent 12 years as a commercial real estate writer and publicist – nine of those years with her own PR agency in New York and Dallas, where she moved in 1990.

In 2010, Janet came back to her B2B public relations roots and created The JW Speakers Agency to bring together local business owners who use free speaking as a way to build their business but don’t want the hassles of getting booked, and local business, civic and consumer groups who use free speakers but don’t want the headaches of having to find them.
