Russell joined our Triout Hospitality team in 2018 and brought with him over 30 years of hospitality experience with 20 years of Information Technology Management. Originally from Wisconsin, he moved to Minnesota in the early 90’s where he teamed up with such national restaurant chains as Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Café, and Famous Dave’s of America. Years later he coupled with Hospitality and Real Estate Management Companies overseeing their IT needs for hotels, residential and commercial properties, and also quick service and casual dining restaurant chains.
