Originally from south Louisiana, Chad Ortis’ career in hospitality took him across the country: He worked Front of House in Chicago, in the mountains of North Georgia and in Los Angeles, including as a wine director at The Buffalo Club in Santa Monica. He returned to the South in 2009 to further his career, accepting a management position at Commander’s Palace: “As a hospitality professional, I can’t think of a better city to work in than New Orleans”, says Chad. In 2014, Chad started working for Link Restaurant Group, joining Peche as a manager. In fall 2018 he became a part of Herbsaint as its General Manager. In his spare time Chad is an avid fisherman and enjoys the outdoors.
