Dick Leinenkugel will become the eighth president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. Every job he has held, including time in state government, has prepared him for this day. It also made him the obvious choice to lead Leinenkugel’s into the future.
He has worked in many capacities for Leinenkugel’s and its parent company, now MillerCoors. That includes a decade as vice president of marketing.
He also served in state politics as Wisconsin’s commerce secretary under Gov. Jim Doyle, and made a brief run for national office as a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate before returning to the Leinenkugel’s fold in 2010.
