Leach & Russell was created by two men with very different vocational backgrounds but a similar approach to serving customers.

Russell Leach began his career in 1966 as an apprentice pipe fitter, completing his five-year apprenticeship in 1971. After working as a foreman for several mechanical contractors, he joined J.A. House, Inc. in 1974, and as a result of his management abilities was promoted to Executive Vice President four years later, and became President in 1991.

After graduating from Ball State University in 1976 with a degree in accounting, Michael Russell began his career at a large public accounting firm in Muncie. He joined J.A. House, Inc. in 1986 as Treasurer and Controller. Over the next eight years, he developed a close working relationship with Russell Leach, which resulted in the pair founding their own company in 1994.
