Pabst Brewing Company Names Bryan Crowley As Chief Marketing Officer

PBRWOODRIDGE, ILL – Pabst Brewing Company (PBC) announced today thatBryan Crowley has joined the Company as Chief Marketing Officer. Crowley is the newest member of the management team headed by recently appointed Chief Executive Officer John Cochran.

“Bryan brings proven expertise in brand revitalization and product innovation, which dovetails perfectly with Pabst’s aggressive growth plans for our portfolio of iconic beer brands,” said Cochran. “He’ll be a tremendous asset to our team.”

Prior to joining PBC, Crowley most recently served as Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Mars Food, Inc. where he led the iconic global rice brand Uncle Ben’s.
