Stone Brewing has hired Maria Stipp as new CEO, replacing Dominic Engels who left the company in August. Maria is the former CEO of Lagunitas Brewing Co. where she departed in February of this year after a five-year stint.
“Maria has all the qualities we were looking for in a CEO,” explained Steve Wagner, Stone Brewing co-founder & interim CEO. “She brings experience from a very well-respected brewery, and experience from outside the industry too. She lives up to our values and has long admired our revolutionary spirit. Most importantly, she’s someone co-founder Greg Koch and I are honored and excited to work with. And the latter is a must, because we’re sticking around!”
