russell's story

I have spent well over 20 successful years in the hospitality industry, beginning my career with Marriott Hotels as a housekeeping manager. After assisting in opening several Marriott Courtyard properties and gaining experience in front office and food & beverage operations, I then moved to Full-Service hotels where I eventually moved into the sales arena to become a relationship building, put the client first, out of the box and forward thinking Director of Sales and Marketing. To date, I have been a Director of Sales & Marketing at several hotels in the greater Los Angeles area. Hotels Brands include: Hilton, Radisson, Marriott & Starwood, not to mention several Indie Hotels. After a stint as General Manager of the Iconic/Legendary Sportsmen's Lodge Hotel and at the Sheraton Universal as a Director of Sales & Marketing, I'm now a Hospitality Entrepreneur who consults in the Hotel/Meeting & Marketing space to include: Hotel/Meeting Site Selection (to include: Corporations, Associations & Traveling Sports Teams), Digital Marketing & Branding via Social Media platforms, Task Force, Affiliate Partnership Management & an On-Line Travel Agent. Oh, did I mention that I was a Veggie-Foodie? Yes! Always looking for good non-meat eats!
