Stephen Russell became the co-coordinator of the Massachusetts Clean Cities coalition in September 2009. That same year, the coalition funded eight hybrid additions to a variety of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks in both public and private fleets. In addition to his duties in the coalition, he is the alternative transportation program coordinator for the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources.

Russell has been in the fleet-management industry for close to 20 years managing both private and public fleet operations. Most recently, Russell was the fleet superintendent for the city of Keene, New Hampshire. If it rolled in the city of Keene, Steve was responsible for keeping it rolling. The fleet vehicles included those used for city departments, including police, fire, rescue, public works, water, wastewater, and the recycling center. Russell pioneered the use of B20 (20% biodiesel, 80% petroleum diesel) over eight years ago, which has been recognized nationally for its introduction to city fleets. Russell has spoken both locally and nationally on the use of biofuels in fleet applications as well as other alternative transportation options for fleets.

Prior to joining the city of Keene, Russell was the fleet and procurement manager for Windshields America, a national auto glass company. Russell is on the board of directors of the New England chapter of the NAFA Fleet Management Association and is the fuel and technology chair for the national association.

Russell has a Bachelor of Science in Community Leadership and Development from Springfield College.
