New Belgium Brewing and Bell’s Brewery appointed a director of diversity, equity and inclusion who will work for both breweries. Courtney Simmons will serve as the newly combined company’s director of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
New Belgium Brewing and Bell’s Brewery are now both subsidiaries of the craft beverage division of Australian food and drink company Lion, which is owned by Japan’s Kirin. Bell’s sold to Lion last November and New Belgium sold in fall of 2019.
The two breweries now include 1,300 employees across four states.
