Following Miller, Randy assumed a leadership position with Andrews Distributing
in Texas. His distributor career began as General Manager of the Corpus Christi, Texas operation. He moved to Dallas as Senior
Vice-President, and then President, of all of Andrews’ operations in Texas. Randy led the Andrews’ organization
in the acquisition of eight distributors in ten years, while consolidating into the Andrews’ portfolio not only Coors
brands, but numerous import and craft brands. During his tenure, Andrews amassed a portfolio that included Miller, Coors,
Heineken, Femsa, Crown, Sam Adams, Gambrinus, Guinness, and numerous craft/import brands that accounted for over 17 million

joint venture, as well as working with distributors in the consolidation of the Miller and Coors brands. Under his leadership,
MillerCoors increased their merged volume from 61% to 78%. Randy’s unique experience gives him a perspective from both
sides of the industry, allowing him to understand the demands placed on the distributor while also having the perspective
of what the supplier strives to achieve.
