His diverse background includes key senior leadership positions in catering, conference services and event management at Embassy Suites and Gaylord Hotels in Dallas, Texas.

Russ Kembel has transitioned to a new position on the sales team as the director of national accounts, and will be based in Seattle, Wash.
