Vacek named NYS Beer Wholesalers president

Attorney, Michael E. Vacek has been named president of the New York State Beer Wholesalers Association, the organization announced recently.

"Mike Vacek's extensive background in governmental and legislative affairs will be of immeasurable help to the State Beer Wholesalers Association in his role as our chief operating officer," Peter Certo, chairman, New York State Beer Wholesalers Assoc., said when announcing the appointment.

Vacek replaced Alfonso Lubrano, who resigned after 11 years as president of the Association, representing 83 franchised beer wholesalers throughout the state. Lubrano plans to relocate to California.

Admitted into the law practice in 1978, Vacek, 36, is a graduate of Manhattan College and Albany Law School. He has served as the Association's legislative representative in Albany since January of this year. Prior to that, Vacek was a partner in a respected Albany lobbying firm, where he represented the New York State Bankers Association, the Real Estate Board of New York, the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Yonkers Raceway and the Shell Oil Co.

Vacek, a native of Johnstown, NY, has also served as a staff member of the New York State Assembly and has been in private practice in Albany.

The new president said that the headquarters for the Association would relocate to Albany.
