Coachella Valley Brewing’s CEO David Humphrey plans to step down to further pursue his expanding law practice and have more time devoted to his family. David co-founded the Coachella Valley Brewing Company with Brewmaster Chris Anderson in 2013 and has been the acting CEO since the breweries inception. David feels it’s time for a new CEO that’s focused solely on the brewery’s success.
“I am very proud that I was an integral part of getting the brewery to the level where we are now and it’s time for a new CEO to take my place and take us to that next level. As much as I love the brewery, I have obligations to my growing and demanding law practice and family. We know there’s the right person out there to fill my shoes and we’re excited about finding that person and continuing to grow the Coachella Valley Brewing Company Brand.”
The CVB Board of Directors will continue to be staffed by owners & team members of the brewery and COO/Brewmaster Chris Anderson will be assuming both roles until the brewery finds the right fit for their future growth and market plans.
Chris commented that “Dave and I started this brewery together and we both have always wanted the same thing for this brewery. Stepping down doesn’t mean stepping away from the company completely. Dave and I still discuss brewery strategy almost every day. He will remain on the board and will be an active participant during our search. So, for us it’s business as usual and there’s always lots of beer that needs to be brewed to fill our orders and the thirst for CVB products. Right now we’re focusing on keeping up with the demand and growing at a healthy pace. It’s a good problem to have, so we’re excited to find the right person for this position.”
Coachella Valley Brewing Co. continues to expand and is expecting double digit growth in the next year. The brewery’s sales in the Coachella Valley are up 168% over last year.
