SAN DIEGO, CA - July 27, 2016 - Coronado Brewing Company is celebrating 20 years of crafting award-winning beers, and now the company is taking a major step forward in planning for the future. The company recently announced the appointment of two chief operating officers to facilitate growth while laying the long-term foundation of independent ownership. "As we continue to grow, and strive to remain independent, we believe it is important to put key people in place who can take the company forward for the foreseeable future," said Ron Chapman, CEO, Coronado Brewing Company. "As my brother and I think about the next five to ten years, we want to be able to hand over the reins knowing we have the right team in place to keep our vision alive."

As the family-owned company enters its second decade of operations, it promotes two internal employees to the shared COO role; Brandon Richards and Kasey Chapman will focus on brewery and retail operations, respectively. Kasey currently oversees the company's retail facilities, including the original brewpub in Coronado, brewery and tasting room in San Diego, and the newly opened fast-casual location in Imperial Beach.  Kasey has been with the company for 15 years and will be vital in maintaining a consistent vision as the company's retail operations evolve.  "Kasey has been with us from very early on; as we plan for the future, having someone in the family with their head in the business was very important for us," said Chapman.

Brandon Richards joined the Coronado family in 2012; he has been instrumental in developing a cohesive sales strategy, as well as implementing the recent brand refresh. "Brandon has been an important addition to the Coronado Brewing family; his background in a family business combined with his previous tenure in the industry has been tremendously valuable to us," said Chapman.  Brandon will now assume strategic oversight of brewery operations while continuing to lead Sales and Marketing. "Working with the Chapman family has been fantastic," said Richards.  "I'm so proud to be part of the Coronado family. Rick and Ron have created an amazing environment for their employees; we challenge each other every day to do better and I'm excited for what the future holds," said Richards.

The changes in roles will be effectively immediately. The remaining executive team at Coronado Brewing Company include Ron Chapman, CEO; Rick Chapman, President; and J.D. Douglas, CFO. Stay Coastal. Cheers.
