A twelve year associate of Montage Hotels & Resorts, Orlich joined Montage Laguna Beach on the pre-opening team in 2002 as food and beverage director, where he was instrumental in positioning the property as an industry leader. Under his direction as general manager, the hotel generated many accolades including Five Star ratings from Forbes Travel Guide for the hotel, Spa Montage and Studio restaurant as well as the AAA Five Diamond Award for the resort. Orlich's leadership resulted in the resort being recognized locally as the "Top Workplace in Orange County" by the Orange County Register.
