Russell L. Adams


Russell was always told he could accomplish anything he put his mind and effort into. When he bought his first business it was nothing more than one truck and a few employees that was run by his wife’s grandfather since 1935. He put the unwavering dedication and long hours into the business to form what is now the largest agent for Arpin Van Lines in the country. Complementing the moving business he has been running a successful mini-storage facility.

Through his dedication to creating customers for life and never settling for second place he has grown multiple businesses in the Peoria area. In 2002, he started a Canon copier dealer that has expanded to employ over forty individuals and six branch offices.

The beginning of 2009 was a slow time in the economy, but where others were concerned he saw more opportunity in diversifying business. Russell opened June restaurant, the most renowned restaurant in Peoria’s history, and by mid-2009 was an integral part of starting Sora Technologies. Russell Adams has been a strong business leader and community supporter in Peoria for many years and is a co-founder of Sora Technologies.

Jeremy Hanshaw

Jeremy Hanshaw

Vice President

Jeremy has always had a profound interest in computers, electronics, and software. After taking his first programming class in high school, he began to teach himself other languages in his spare time. This hobby coupled with his creative ingenuity yielded several graphical websites. His drive for knowledge led him to obtain his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Northern Illinois University, which gave him the understanding of electronics at the most basic levels.Afterwards he took a job in the aerospace industry at a large engineering company. This job allowed him to integrate hardware and software on projects such as the Boeing 787 and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. While employed at the aerospace company, he put his scholastic abilities back to work and received a Master’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University.

Jeremy’s interest in computers and networks eventually pulled him away from aerospace electronics and he joined the Sora Technologies team in the beginning of 2010. Since that time, Jeremy has earned accreditation as an Apple Certified Support Professional.
