Tod Christenson Announces Retirement as BIER’s Executive Director Associate Director Nick Martin to Transition into the RoleMay 30, 2018 | BIER
“I want to offer my thanks and appreciation for the trust you have extended to me, and the sincere friendships that have developed,” says Christenson. “Thank you all for your confidence and for letting me learn through you.” His final BIER meeting occurred last week at the spring gathering in Copenhagen, and his final work product will be the soon-to-be-released update to the Beverage Industry Sector Guidance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting.
Stepping into the Executive Director role will be current Associate Director Nick Martin, who facilitates our Water and Technology working groups and has been with BIER since its inception. Says Martin, “I’m honored to be stepping into the big shoes Tod will be leaving behind. BIER has some exciting projects on the horizon, and I am excited to play a role in guiding and growing this great group of industry-leading companies.”
We join with all the BIER member organizations and participants (past and present) in thanking Tod for his hard work and dedication. We wish him the best in his retirement and are grateful for his leadership. And we’re thrilled knowing that Nick will lead us in advancing collaboration and accelerating to sustainable impact for the beverage industry and beyond.
