Boys & Girls Club of Door County Board of Directors announced today that it has hired John McMahon as its new Chief Executive Officer. McMahon and his family were honored in 2016 by Door County Economic Development Corporation as Entrepreneur of the Year for founding and growing Door County Brewing Company.
“We are fortunate to have found someone with John’s business experience and local Door County roots to lead our organization into a new decade,” said Boys & Girls Club of Door County Board President Steve Kane. “We are confident John’s skills in marketing and technology and his experience as an innovative entrepreneur make him the right person at the right time to lead our community’s Boys & Girls Club.”
Prior to establishing Door County Brewing Company in 2012, McMahon worked in the technology sector as a sales professional for various well-known companies including Hewlett-Packard, Salesforce, Polycom, and Cisco Systems.
While moving from the brewery to the Boys & Girls Club might seem like an unusual path, it feels like the natural next step according to McMahon.
“As a local business owner, I’ve always felt strongly about supporting the Door County community and being a good corporate citizen,” said McMahon. Door County Brewing Company supported many athletic and music events in addition to local non-profit and arts-related organizations throughout the years.
McMahon has served on various non-profit boards throughout the years including local organizations such as Door County Land Trust, Baileys Harbor Business Association, and Alumni Door County. He also served as the Door County Fundraising Chairperson for the MACC Fund. In 1994, McMahon’s work in conjunction with WisNet resulted in donations of computer networking equipment to all five Door County school districts and libraries.
“I love this community so much and am very grateful for all it has given to me and my family throughout the years,” said McMahon. “I cannot think of a better way to repay that debt of gratitude than by helping develop the next generation of civic and business leaders at the Boys & Girls Club.”
