A New Orleans native, Eddie Esposito’s greatest achievements came after losing his house and two businesses to Hurricane Katrina. The former high-flying chef, who cooked aboard private aircraft for celebrities and four U.S. Presidents, was forced to move his family to Atlanta.
Eddie began traveling back to New Orleans to support his fellow devastated business owners. He brought the business owners together weekly to help them sort through insurance difficulties, family issues and the uncertainty of living life in the wake of tragedy. Through Eddie’s support, every business in the group was able to recover. The lessons Eddie learned ultimately became the founding elements of Asentiv’s entrepreneurial program; The Spectacular Entrepreneur.
Although he no longer cooks professionally, Eddie lives in New Orleans with his wife Heather and their three children; Jorden, Mattie and Amelia. He loves old BMWs, great Italian wines, and cooking for friends.
