About Paul Burgis '12

If you don’t know Paul Burgis, Golden Road Brewing’s COO/CFO and acting General Manager, just look for the snazziest dresser on the GRB campus. Paul joined our team in September 2012 and since then his intelligence, patience and initiative have led Golden Road to growth and success.

After graduating from UC Santa Barbara, Paul returned to school, receiving his MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Business. While studying, Paul oversaw Anheuser-Busch’s $330 million production lines, including a canning line rated the fastest and highest producing in the United States. (That one line produced almost double the beer in one day that Golden Road produced last year!) Eventually he moved on to the business side of beer, restructuring staffing for Anheuser-Busch and determining appropriate operating budgets. When Paul left Anheuser-Busch, he was the Plant Controller - the highest position in the business department over seeing a 660 million dollar spend annually.

“I love a challenge and the feeling of getting to the finish line with a great team next to you, knowing that we have accomplished what only a few could do,” said Paul.
