This teeny tiny brewing company has named their new Chief Executive Officer. You’ve probably never heard of them.. They’re a Scottish brewery called BrewDog and they’ve only recently marked their territory on US soil. But now that they’re settled in a bit and just ahead of opening a taproom in the Short North and Franklinton, BrewDog has named their Top Dog.
Tanisha Robinson of Columbus has been named CEO of BrewDog USA. You’ve probably never heard of her because she’s completely dormant in Columbus society. The only things she’s ever done is head up a startup called Print Syndicate, a design, tech, and marketing company, and co-founded TicketFire, a mobile app that allows users to transfer and sell paper tickets. She serves on three low-key boards; CCAD, Mt. Carmel Health System, and GCAC.
All jokes aside, Robinson is a total bizz rockstar.
“We have been searching for someone to head up our USA operations, and as soon as we met Tanisha we knew we’d found our Top Dog,” said James Watt, Co-founder of BrewDog. “The killer combination of her astute business instinct, huge passion for craft beer, and her love of our new hometown, Columbus made her the perfect fit. Our USA launch and expansion is one of the most exciting and ambitious ventures we’ve dreamt up yet, and with Tanisha at the helm, the sky is the limit.”
Robinson will be in charge of the brewery’s USA operations and will lead its growth in America. Her first objective is to corner the Ohio market then expand to neighboring states and beyond.
“We’re focused on making great beers, telling our story to the US in a very BrewDog way, being the greatest place to work in the world, and creating awesome experiences for our customers and the Equity Punk community,” said Robinson.
Equity for Punks is BrewDog’s community of investors. There are currently about 7,000 shareholders who have raised more than $6 million.
