Janet graduated from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga where she earned a BS in Business and Marketing, she did not immediately enter the family’s business, but rather, chose to gain experience on the supplier side working with the Stroh Brewery. She was hired as one of the first female district managers, responsible for the sales and marketing in North Dakota and Montana. Shortly thereafter, she was promoted to Marketing Manager and responsible for six states in the Midwest region.
Having garnered what she considered invaluable experience on the supplier side and having worked with wholesalers around the country, she then joined Louis Glunz Beer, Inc. During her tenure with the company, she has applied that knowledge and earned increased responsibilities in her roles as brand manager, sales manager, and most recently, as chief financial officer.
In her free time, Janet is committed to giving back to her community. She has been a board member and supported the River North Dance Company, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Iroquois Valley Farms; the director of enrichment for Greeley Elementary School; a basketball coach for the Winnetka Park District; and, a Boy Scout den mother. She and her husband, Barry reside in Winnetka with their three children.
