RUSSELL C. POSS II
FOUNDER & CEO
R.C. Poss was founded by Russell (Rusty) C. Poss II, a self-taught businessman who moved to Macon, Georgia in 1991. The city of Macon is full of both historic charm and new construction, which is what initially attracted Rusty to the area. He saw the potential to work on both residential and commercial projects, including retail and medical facilities. Rusty has developed and built over 600 units of multifamily projects and over $6 million worth of historic tax credit projects. He is familiar with the Secretary of Interiors Guidelines for Historic Preservation and holds certifications with the International Building Code, the International Mechanical Code, the International Plumbing Code, and the National Electrical Code. Rusty is also an active member of the Associated General Contractors.
Rachel is a Macon native who graduated from Wesleyan College in May of 2010 with a degree in Business Management. While in school, she also oversaw the bookkeeping for Poss. "I loved everything about my job - from learning about architecture and design to meeting new clients. It was the perfect step into the business world for me." Soon after graduating, Phillips decided to take a leap in a different direction and opened Jack & Milly, a clothing boutique in Milledgeville, Georgia, with her father John Watts.
