New Belgium CFO/COO promoted to president.
New Belgium Brewing has announced the promotion of long-time Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer, Christine Perich to the position of president. Perich, who started as CFO with New Belgium in 2004, has overseen all aspects of operations since 2009. At the end of 2012 she guided the company through a 2nd Stage ESOP transaction, which resulted in New Belgium becoming a 100% employee-owned company. The company reports Ms. Perich will now have oversight of all day-to-day operations and the construction and integration of the company's second production facility in Asheville, NC, which is slated for completion in late 2015. She will continue to report directly to CEO and co-founder Kim Jordan and New Belgium's board.
"I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked closely with so many talented people through a dynamic period of growth for both New Belgium and the industry," Ms. Perich said. "This opportunity will allow me to focus on aligning our Fort Collins and Asheville operations and leading New Belgium through the next stage of growth."
"Christine has been an incredible presence at New Belgium; her work on key strategic issues, coupled with her grace and professionalism in everyday management makes her selection as New Belgium's President a dream fit for the company and for me," said Ms. Jordan.
