Chana Russell

Executive Assistant

Behind every effective executive is that exceptional individual who makes sure “things happen.” That person at Werth is Chana. Balancing her calm demeanor with a get-it-done attitude, Chana maintains the busy schedule for Werth’s President and CEO Sandra Harbrecht. She also plays an important role in managing the day-to-day operations of the office and acts as the point of contact between the president and many Werth clients as well as community and business leaders.

Chana also has a deep and versatile skill set that makes her a key contributor to the firm in ways that go far beyond her core responsibilities. She manages and plans events for Werth and its clients, provides a fresh eye by proofreading critical documents, helps manage the firm’s database system, and assists with the firm’s marketing efforts.

Her finance background also means she’s a valuable asset to Werth’s chief financial officer by providing accounting support. If there was a title that could convey all that she does while also having that uncanny ability to be exactly what you need, right when you need it most, then there’s no doubt Chana would own it.
