Brad Monte – General Manager, Schlesinger’s Chophouse

Point Blank

Brad and wife Melissa with children Bradyn and Giana.

I am in the service and hospitality industry because it is instant gratification every day. I have found that you are either blessed or humbled by your guests.

A word of advice from someone I trust is always leave it in the day, for you will never know what tomorrow will bring.

If I had to say I had a single passion, it would be being a general manager of Schlesinger’s where I get to make people feel like kings and queens for the time they are with us.

One thing that most people do not know about me is that I am a “Jack of all trades” and a master of only a few.

When I was growing up and I thought about being an adult, I always thought I would end up being an attorney because I can argue with the best of them. I decided to take a more humbled approach and became a restaurant manager.

It’s St. Patrick’s month and I feel lucky because I am blessed with a beautiful wife, two loving children and I get to work and live in an amazing family-oriented community.

Three things on my “bucket list” are Disney World, a trip on the Euro Rail and to see the Redskins in a Super Bowl.

A motto I try to live my life by is to never go to bed angry and if you do, wake up to make up.

I feel best when I am approaching every day and every person with grace.

My dream car is an RV.

If I could do a single thing to change the world, I would encourage all high school students be required to work in the hospitality industry for two summers before graduating.

My favorite hobby is to wake board.

The first thing most people seem to notice about me is my leadership.
