New Belgium Brewing Company CEO Steve Fechheimer will leave the brand at the end of this summer, according to a June 12 emailed press release. The executive has been instrumental in the Colorado-based brewery’s rapid rise over the past six years.
Fechheimer will pursue “new challenges” beginning August 1, the brand says. Current chief financial officer Danielle McLarnon, who’s been on-staff at New Belgium for 19 years, will step in as interim CEO. The brewery, based in Fort Collins, Colo., will conduct a search for the next CEO.
