July 11, 2016 – Cooperstown, NY – Duvel Moortgat USA announced today that Doug Campbell, a 12-year beer and spirits industry veteran, joins Brewery Ommegang as President effective August 1st 2016. Among his duties Doug will oversee the day-to-day operations at the Cooperstown brewery as well as spearhead all marketing initiatives for Brewery Ommegang. Doug takes over the role from Bill Wetmore, who is leaving to pursue other opportunities at the end of September, following a transition period.

“Finding the next leader for Brewery Ommegang was a challenge we could not take lightly,” said Simon Thorpe, President of Duvel Moortgat USA. “Bill has done terrific work over the last 2 years & it was important we find someone to carry on the torch who not only had the talent to take Brewery Ommegang into its future, but someone who wanted to put roots down in the Cooperstown community. Doug brings a wealth of expertise in high-end spirits & beer; a great passion for craft and our culture; & a desire to build on an already flourishing, iconic brewery that recently won Champion Brewery at the World Beer Cup 2016. We look forward to his contribution to the Duvel Moortgat US family over the coming years.”

Prior to joining Ommegang and Duvel Moortgat, Doug held a number of positions with Diageo over a 12-year period. Most recently he was Brand Director for Ketel One Vodka and was previously Brand Director for Diageo-Guinness USA’s beer portfolio including Guinness, Red Stripe, Smithwick’s and Harp. Doug also spent several years in brand management of other Diageo spirits brands, including Smirnoff and Jose Cuervo Tequila. Doug is a long-time craft beer enthusiast and an even longer follower and fan of Ommegang. He received his MBA from Wharton, an MA in International Relations from Johns Hopkins, and his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University. 

Doug, his wife Alison, and their three children will move to the Cooperstown area prior to the start of the school year.
