Dean "Gerard" Pigéon Jr.Director of Operations

Gerard Pigeon -Director of Operations

Growing up in New Orleans, food will already be a huge part of your life. When your father starts a catering company, it becomes your life! For Gerard Pigéon it didn't quite come so quickly, though always being around Pigéon Caterers, he started his job life as the Coach's Assistant and Equipment Manager for the New Orleans Saints. He then joined the catering world as the Production Manager for the Sodexo Recovery School District before moving into the Production Manager role then later Director of Operations at Pigéon Caterers. With a new baby to add to the Pigéon Clan, Gerard continues to ensure quality of every event out the door, and will soon be bringing his little one in to work, as his dad did with him.
