Sales is the backbone of our company – we work hard to get our product into the hands of beer (and beyond beer) drinkers everywhere. Our Sales team is built of top-tier individuals who bring our leading brands into retail accounts, bars, and restaurants across the country, but that barely scratches the surface. The Sales team also dives into forecasting, trade marketing, business and wholesaler development, pricing and promotion analysis, key account management, and category management. This team strategizes to develop the best ways to sell our products and transform the industry, building relationships with consumers to create a better world as they go.
Our marketers are responsible for building legendary brands that people know, love, and keep in their fridge. To give our brands the best platform possible, our marketing function consists of roles of all kinds including brand management, consumer insights, innovation, experiential and event management, and sponsorship, as well as traditional and digital media. No wonder we’re the envy of the branding and advertising world.
How do our iconic brands make it from the production line, to store shelves, and in your hand? Our Logistics team manages a network of breweries, warehouses, and distribution centers to get our products to our customers. Their mission is to have the most efficient, best-in-class supply chain processes, from getting the best raw materials to planning to transportation. They are vital to our cause. Because after all, what good is brewing the best beers in the world if they never make it into your hand?
Our Supply group is responsible for brewing, packaging and shipping our beloved products. They also oversee aluminum can manufacturing, barley fields, hop farms and a rice mill. Life in the brewery is non-stop action with high-speed lines, tight production schedules and unbelievably high quality standards. This is a place where we measure productivity in seconds, not hours, days or weeks.
Paramount in all of this is a commitment to safety above all else and social responsibility. 99.8% of everything that enters our breweries is either completely used in the process or recycled. We also dedicate those big, high-speed lines to help our communities during times of disaster by packaging cans of emergency drinking water. Our customers expect the best and the Supply team provides it.
Our greatest strength is our people. Anheuser-Busch is driven by its talent, so it’s important for us to put the right people in the right functions and help them grow. As captains of our culture, the People team attracts, engages, and fosters diverse talent to grow within our high-performance environment.
The People team supports the business by finding and implementing smart employee management initiatives, ensuring organizational alignment, setting targets, and driving efficiency through value-added, people-centric solutions to address business challenges.
Our Technology function is responsible for much more than its name suggests. By focusing on innovation and technology, this team helps the company solve a variety of business challenges such as predicting out-of-stock product, big-data analytics and supporting e-commerce platforms. It’s so much more than just resetting your home router.
Our legal and corporate affairs teams plays a key role in managing everything from M&A to PR, media relations, internal and external communications and our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. They lead our responsible drinking and disaster relief initiatives and our environmental programs.
If cash is king, then our Finance team is the royal advisor. They’re responsible for M&A, treasury, accounting, financial planning and tax, all of which support immediate and long-term commercial properties and innovation, sustaining our company long into the future. Agility is essential in the Finance function as these roles own the responsibility of rebalancing our product portfolio towards growing segments. Outside of this, Finance also plays an integral role in delivering our Zone LFG Dream.
Procurement balances the quality, cost, and risk for every purchase that puts a beer in your hand. This includes working with suppliers of categories ranging from raw ingredients and packaging to logistics and trade marketing materials – all while engaging internal stakeholders across the company's functions. The people on this team have a deep understanding of the materials and requirements necessary to create products that people will both love and feel comfortable purchasing at their price point. As expert decision-makers, the Procurement team manages day-to-day acquisitions that keep A-B brewing with speed and ease.
This is the team that makes those lasting connections with everyone, and yes, we mean everyone. From consumers who purchase our awesome beverages, to retailers who sell that awesome beverage, to wholesalers who distribute our (yes, awesome) beverages, and to finally our colleagues, who are our #1. Whether you have a passion in making one on one consumer connections through social media or phone/email, an interest in digital marketing, or you’re curious about customer and market research, this is the group for you.
