Faisal, Russell’s father, focuses on business development, marketing and customer relations. Russell oversees print production and operations. Together, they lead a team of five total.
Before SpeedPro, Faisal worked in the U.S. government in both the Department of the Interior as a project manager and the Department of Commerce as assistant chief of technical projects. He has more than 15 years of experience in business consulting and business ownership and was also a senior executive fellow at Harvard University. Russell’s experience stems from sales and customer service and is currently a student at Full Sail University studying visual and game programming.
“Owning this business works great for my profession in visual and game programming,” says Russell. “When my dad informed me about SpeedPro, I was excited. I love computer graphics and this is a perfect fit for me.”
As the Ahmeds grow their SpeedPro studio, their goal is to exemplify great customer service, print high-quality products and eventually transfer the business entirely to Russell. Russell is the newest and youngest franchise owner in the SpeedPro network at 21-years-old.
“We’re excited to have this father-son duo leading SpeedPro Silver Spring,” says CEO Larry Oberly. “Their business expertise, creativity and ambition will make an impact on the Washington, D.C and Maryland communities.”
