russell's story

Before I became a Live Radio Show Host of “On Air with Russell of Hotels” & a Veggie Foodie who is always looking for “Great Non-Meat Eats,” I 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 entered 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, 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 & Meetings Site Selection, Hotel Business Development, Task Force Management & Social Media Branding for hospitality related organizations. So, I guess I’m the perfect person to Interview Hospitality Professionals about their careers. Check out “On Air with Russell of Hotels” at
