Russell Cleveland

Russell Cleveland

Founder & CEO SwingMove®

Russell is the visionary founder and creator of SwingMove®. You are here because he is here.

While he refers to himself as a “Lifetime Student,” it is obvious that for him…class is never over. He is a world-class octogenarian at every level. His business acumen in financial markets, his wizardry ability to analyze business and stock market trends for the BBC World News Service for over a decade, still has time to be a huge patron of arts and education.

He was awarded a music scholarship at North Texas State University before electing to pursue a business education at the Wharton School in his early years. From there his momentum to love and support music and business earned him the highest marks from his colleagues and corporations.
Today he continues to write and create, focusing on his legacy project, SwingMove®. Crediting this daily practice of movement with his ability to stay mentally alert and play tennis twice a week for more than six decades is our most powerful endorsement. Author, musician and athlete, Mr. Cleveland welcomes you to join his revolutionary gift to the world, SwingMove®.
