This past Tuesday, June 12th 2018, Maggie Timoney shattered the U.S. beer industry’s glass ceiling. Timoney was named CEO of Heineken USA, replacing Ronald den Elzen who took on a global role within Heineken.

Originally, Timoney joined Heineken in 1998 working on a national sales planning role. She was named Heineken USA’s senior Vice President of human resources in 2010. She then journeyed to Ireland and worked as the CEO for the past five years.

Heineken is the nation’s fourth-largest U.S. beer supplier according to Beer Marketer’s Insights. This makes Timoney the first woman to lead a major U.S. beer supplier. Women power! With such a male-dominated industry, it’s really nice to see a woman leading such a successful beer company.

Kudos to you, Timoney, and good luck on your journey with Heineken!

Cheers to beer,

Danyelle
