Co-owner Tillie Pan has traveled and lived all over the United States, working in high level sales and marketing positions for companies such as AVEDA and L’Oreal. For 8 years she sold medical equipment to a physician network of plastic surgeons and dermatologists. In these roles, she relied on her organizational and event planning skills to help accomplish her professional goals. In the middle of this very fast paced professional life, she was very fortunate to meet her husband David Pan, an extremely talented chef. It was at that point everything as they knew it changed.
Chef Pan’s specialty is French methods while remaining focused on the latest trends and techniques in the industry. After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Mendota Heights, Chef Pan began his career at the 3 Diamond rated WA Frost in St. Paul under Chef Russell Kline. He expanded his culinary experience working with noted chefs at elite establishments that included the Minneapolis Club, James Beard winning Gustavus Inn. David moved to the gulf coast in 2013 and had the honor of working for Chef Bill Briand of Fishers Orange Beach as well as working for Eric Beech of Brick and Spoon. While he is new to the coast, his culinary impact is already well known by his peers.
Orange Beach Concierge was born out of her love of hosting a great party, event planning and everyday organization combined with David’s drive and desire to be the very best at his culinary craft. Orange Beach Concierge is an Alabama gulf coast-based boutique concierge company offering a wide range of highly personalized services including catering, concierge, corporate retreats, event designing, personal chef, private dining and staging services supporting individuals, businesses, vacationers and property owners alike.
