Chadwick Landry’s College Summer Internship in Washington, D.C. came to a screeching halt upon his return to LSU, when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma on September 21, 1995. He was given a 50% chance of survival but defied the odds, going on to a very successful twenty-year career in the financial services industry. He is the Founder and Portfolio Manager at Poydras Capital Partners. Chad currently serves as a board member of LSU Health Sciences Foundation, Ochsner Health Foundation, and the Al Copeland Foundation. Chad holds a B.S. in Finance from Louisiana State University. He also currently holds his Series 7, 63, and 65 licenses. Chad lives in Metairie, Louisiana. He spends his free time reading, running, traveling, scuba diving, and raising money for his local cancer nonprofit organization the New Orleans Lympho-Maniac Cancer Fund.
