Q&A with Chris Russell – Spire Hospitality

For Chris Russell, CEO, Spire Hospitality, success comes from experience. With humble beginnings in the restaurant industry, he learned in high school the importance of not only gaining invaluable experience but creating an enjoyable experience for others. Since then, Russell knew hospitality was the industry for him, and much like a number of his peers, used his knowledge and passion to climb the ranks. Now, the CEO is focused on Spire with a major goal this year: Be the best, not the biggest.
