Thrilled to have Molson’s new CEO and President write for the Molson blog! Thanks Dave, and welcome back to Canada. Cheers, Tonia
I’ve spent the past 8 years outside Canada with Molson Coors, looking after my US and International responsibilities. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the extensive global business travel where I’ve been fortunate to meet thousands of beer drinkers, customers, and partners in dozens of countries. I feel constant pride in being part of a business that builds beer brands around the world that are at the heart of people getting together to enjoy time with friends, family, and colleagues. Think of how many friendships have been started, and how many memories created, while enjoying one of our great brands or attending one of the many fun events that we make possible. That’s pretty cool and it’s what’s kept me in this business for virtually my entire career. I can’t think of a reason why I’d want to be a part of anything else.
The time living and traveling outside Canada has also strengthened another source of pride I feel – in Canada. How often do you hear a friend reflect on what a great people Canadians are, and what a special place Canada is when they come back from foreign travel. It’s easy to take what we have for granted.
On July 1st, please join me in toasting Canadians, Canada, and our role in the world over a frosty Molson beer. Cheers and here’s to responsible choices.
