Mike Brown among 100 other executives to be named to American City Business Journals list
Congratulations, Mike Brown! Our owner and CEO was named to a national list of influential young executives.
The list, compiled by American City Business Journals, is comprised of 100 executives nationwide.
"The group includes entrepreneurs, innovators, deal-makers, and risk-takers," the Albany Business Review reports. "And, because they’re still early in their careers, these executives could shape how business is done for years to come."
Mike is one of three local executives to be added to the list. Other Albany area executives include Lisa Barone of Overit and Karen Torrejon of Glauconix Biosciences Inc.
Mike was recently named to the 2019 Albany Business Review 40 Under 40.
It's been a wild ride for Mike at Death Wish, and we can't wait to see what's next. He founded Death Wish in 2012 with the mission to fuel his groggy morning customers. Fast forward almost 8 years, and we've had a Super Bowl Commercial, expanded into thousands of grocery stores, and even sent coffee to space. Two years ago, Mike was named the 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year for Emerging Business in New York.
Mugs up to Mike!
