How many meetings have I attended at the brewery in Golden? You can go right from the pitch, downstairs to the tasting room where tours end and free beer begins. You might say it’s a tradition, one that many Integer employees still practice. But all that is about to change.
According to USA Today, MillerCoors is moving into new digs at 250 South Wacker Drive in Chicago’s Loop district by next June.
Some 400 employees will work there — part of the pairing’s effort to save on costs — including senior executives, and employees in marketing, human resources, legal, finance and other divisions.
Many of the employees will be shifted from SABMiller’s U.S. headquarters in Milwaukee and Molson Coors’ headquarters in Golden, Colo. Between 150 and 175 will be coming from each city, spokesman Julian Green said.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
