Russell Lowell, Executive Chef/Owner: Russell Lowell Catering, Russell’s Restaurant in Bothell & The Garden Café at Molbak’s in Woodinville.

Russell's lifelong passion for food began when he was a small boy, exploring the mangrove waterways of Cuba, catching fish and hunting small game. At the age of 15, cooking under the direction of a French chef in Southern California, Russell discovered his true calling. Over the course of his career, he traveled and worked extensively in fine dining restaurants, perfecting his skills, which led him to become the executive chef for several restaurants across the nation. In the mid-90s, he launched one of Seattle's most sought-after catering businesses, serving the most distinguished clientele in business, politics, and entertainment. Chef Lowell's reverence for life and cuisine, complemented by his drive to deliver an exceptional experience, makes him one of the Pacific Northwest's most respected chefs.

The quarterly SBGE Dean's Speaker Series brings together outstanding local and regional business professionals with our undergraduate students to share their insights, and to bring the workworld into the classroom.
