About Us


Sam Russo

Samantha comes from a lineage of automotive industry professionals. But she found herself longing to do something different. So, when she found herself in the construction industry – building and renovating automotive facilities – she discovered her true passion: Caring for buildings after they’ve been built or renovated. Now at DFM, she’s in charge of implementation, launches, business development and supplier diversity – continuing DFM’s commitment to equality.

⚊ One of her first jobs was “Ice Girl” at the Peoria Rivermen Hockey Club – a combination cheerleader and fan promotions.
