Leah Berhanu -Director of Sales and Marketing

Food, if you start talking to Leah about it, she won't stop. Starting her life in hospitality at a very young age, watching a smile on ones face when pleased with a meal or an event is what makes her happy, so she decided to make a career of it. Growing up in Dallas she started serving and bartending in various restaurants and hotels before making the move to New Orleans. With the Big Easy being one of the top tourist cities in the country, it only made sense. Stumbling across Pigéon Caterers nine years ago was her start in sales. Weddings being her main focus for the first eight years with the company, she eventually briefly stepped into the Marketing role, then later as the Director of Sales and Marketing. She now oversees the Pigéon Sales Team (they like to call themselves the Pigéonettes) and explores new marketing opportunities for Pigéon Caterers.
