Tin Roof Brewing gets a CEO!
(Baton Rouge, LA) – Tin Roof Brewing Company is excited to announce that Jacob Talley will be stepping into the role as CEO of Tin Roof Brewing Company.
After serving as Mockler Beverage’s Craft Brand Manager since early 2013, Talley has agreed to bring his knowledge and experience to the supplier side. As a Brand Manager, Talley was in charge of up to 40 different craft/import suppliers and guided the company’s double-digit craft growth year over year.
“The Mockler Beverage team is like family to me,” said Talley. “They gave me the opportunity to lead their craft division and I am extremely grateful for the valuable experience and lessons I learned during my time there. The endeavor of becoming a supplier will certainly present its own set of challenges, but I am excited for the opportunity to help Tin Roof grow into the next phase. The brewery is certainly capable of taking the next step to solidify itself as a significant craft brewery in the region.
This move will allow Talley to focus on a long-term strategy for Tin Roof as they enter a time of rapid growth for their company.
“Jacob has a unique perspective of this industry. He understands our business, our culture and what the beer drinkers in our area are looking for. He has also been involved with the brewery, in one form or another, since our journey began in 2010. He was here helping us brew one of the very first batches of beer back then. From there, he was hired at Mockler and was our brand manager at our hometown distributor. Now we find him on our team and we couldn’t be more excited about the future of the brewery,” said William McGehee, co-founder of Tin Roof Brewing Company.
When he isn’t at Tin Roof, you can find Talley spending time with his family, wife of six years, Lindsey, and two children; Mason, 4, and Zoe, 5 months.
The role will be effective immediately.
