Since Jacob Best turned out 18 barrels per batch in 1848, Pabst Brewing Co has held deep ties to America’s brewery heritage. From the iconic blue ribbon, first introduced in 1882, to the critically-acclaimed launch of ‘Not Your Father’s Root Beer’ in 2015, Pabst Brewing Co today has a portfolio of over 50 premium brands.
Following their sale to Eugene Kashper in 2015, the company embarked on a period of hyper growth. The new ownership needed to understand and evaluate organizational challenges, while bolstering human capital across multiple functions.
Their objectives? Premiumize their outstanding portfolio through import, and build a craft beer portfolio through innovation and acquisition.
With a hiring spree brewing to match their specific business objectives, Pabst Brewing Co selected Protis Global as their primary talent acquisition and advisory firm.
With our commitment to high standards and quality of scale across the team, clients like Pabst Brewing Co know we can handle and execute high volume position searches, provide advisory services in post-acquisition evaluation, competition modeling, and respond to ad hoc requests.
That’s why we’re still partnering to this day. But how did it start?
