Malik Russell

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Mr. Russell arrived at Success Academy Bronx 1 in 2013 as a leadership fellow and the following year moved to SA Harlem Central, becoming the school’s leadership resident. A graduate of the University of South Carolina, Mr. Russell majored in psychology and captained the men’s varsity basketball team. He earned a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center and worked as a corporate lawyer at Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett, and in financial services at Goldman Sachs and UBS. Due to his experience in New York City’s Prep for Prep program in his youth, Mr. Russell had a deep appreciation for education reform, which drew him to Success Academy’s dual mission. Mr. Russell has three daughters and two sons (including a brand new set of twins, Judge and Adayla). He enjoys sports, films, and avoiding the inevitable question, “How tall are you?” He is 6’8”.
