About Joe Chad Ellard
Since 1995, Joe Chad Ellard has worked with National Teacher Associates Inc., based outside of Dallas, Texas, and EE Ranches Inc. in a number of different capacities. National Teacher Associates offers supplemental life and health insurance to those working throughout the United States as educators and government employees and for private companies as well. His father founded the companies, but today Joe Chad Ellard serves them both in an executive capacity.
Ellard’s business experience, however, is not limited to these two companies. He is also the owner and Director of the Cotton Plantation Land Group, LLC, and the Spicy Gumbo Property Group, LLC. He manages the day-to-day operations of both property management businesses, including acquisitions. One property Ellard bought, and which he manages through Spicy Gumbo, is evidence of his keen interest in American history; the building was built in 1820 New Orleans’ French Quarter and was later used by the U.S. Army as its administration building during the Spanish American War.
Outside of his work, Ellard supports a number of charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project and the Playing for Change Foundation. An expert yachtsman, he has accumulated thousands of blue-water miles sailing around the world. He also enjoys fishing and diving off the shores of his home in St. Pete Beach, Florida.
