Amy Michtich
Brewery Vice President
Elkton, VA

“A career in manufacturing provides limitless opportunities that tap into your individual talents, personal values and leadership styles.  As a manufacturing leader, every day I have the opportunity to be conceptual yet strategic; technical and resourceful; engaging and collaborative; competitive but encouraging; but most importantly, challenged and rewarded.  Never boring!”

Amy joined MillerCoors in 2009 and was quickly promoted to become the first female plant manager at the Shenandoah Brewery, located in Elkton, VA.  Under Amy’s leadership the brewery has accomplished a range of achievements including being recognized as “Brewery of the Year,” ranking first against established global benchmark performance metrics in brewing.  It was also the first brewery in North America to be recognized as an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program Star Site, highlighting the excellent safety performance of the facility and the culture that has created great performance through employee ownership.  In 2013, the plant received the VA Governors Award for environmental excellence in sustainability efforts. 
Amy is an innovative thinker who effectively translates strategic imperatives into specific actions that her people can grasp and build plans to deliver against.  She is passionate about instilling a service orientation and having employees recognize who their customers are and what exceptional service looks like.  As such, Amy’s plant employee engagement scores are ranked one of the highest across the organization.
Amy is also an active leader in her community, volunteering for many boards and foundations.  Amy serves on the Board of Advisors for the College Business at James Madison University, where she also is a mentor and Chapter Advisor for Gamma Phi Beta sorority.  She also leads the strategic development for REFI, a local educational foundation supporting the Rockingham County Public Schools.  Previously, Amy has chaired the United Way of Harrisonburg/Rockingham County Community Impact Campaign.  Finally, on behalf of MillerCoors, Amy has implemented several STEM scholarships for area graduating seniors.  Amy’s passion and commitment are an asset to her community, providing valuable educational resources focused on driving higher education achievement.
