Max Parnell, general manager of Lincoln Social Rooftop in Columbus, Ohio's Short North Arts District
Max Parnell
General Manager

Max Parnell joined Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) in 2019 as a supervisor at Lincoln Social Rooftop. He took his talents to the next level when he helped open El Segundo Mexican Kitchen as a Beverage Manager. Max was then promoted to General Manager of El Segundo before taking over as General Manager at Lincoln Social Rooftop.

Parnell found interest in the restaurant and hospitality industry at a young age. Personal experiences, an appreciation for connecting with people, and the genuine joy he got when dining at memorable places, are what turned his interest into a career.

“Don’t be afraid of hard work and be prepared to persevere,” Parnell said when asked about advice he has for those seeking a career in restaurants and hospitality. “Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth, and never lose sight of your goals. Remember that success often comes to those who are willing to go the extra mile.” Parnell also said to “prioritize continuous learning, but above all else, take care of yourself and those around you.”

When asked what his favorite thing about working for CMR is, Parnell said, “the feeling of togetherness and family. Working for this company has opened a lot of doors for me personally and professionally and I have met hundreds of great people who have all had an impact on me or vice versa.”

A native of Columbus, Parnell spends his time outside of work discovering new technology, playing video games, curating a functional office space, enjoying a delicious meal with family and friends, and getting outside in nature. His favorite CMR dish is the Chicken Carbonara from Martini Modern Italian. Parnell most looks forward to seeing those he works with thrive and succeed, both professionally and personally.
