Andrew Ford is the Executive Chef for Chartwells on the Pitt-Greensburg campus. He grew up in western New York and attended the Culinary Institute of America.

“I ended up at Pitt-Greensburg because my wife is from Greensburg and wanted to be close to family,” Ford said.

In August, it will be two years since Ford joined the Pitt-Greensburg staff. In his time here, he has enjoyed meeting and interacting with the students. One of his favorite parts of the job is working to make sure student’s needs are met and taken care of.

In addition to working with students, Ford loves to cook seafood, which is his favorite thing to make.

“The creativity in cooking and staying up on new trends are what make it fun,” Ford said.

Students may not know to whom they can talk at Chartwells about their dining needs or other options they would like to see being served and offered.

“Students are welcome to come and share their ideas with me,” Ford said.

Ford can be contacted by email at
