More Information

When she was appointed president of Worcester’s largest brewery in August, Kim Golinski was joining a leadership team stripped down by controversy. Four of Wormtown Brewery’s five male leaders stepped back from business operations in July after allegations of workplace sexual harrassment circulated on social media.

Golinski has already pushed forward a new image for the brewery as one of the very few women in brewery leadership in the region, and her work promises to shake up the male-dominated industry. She has committed to creating socially conscious products, starting with the She Hoppy beer, which focuses on women in the beer industry. Proceeds from the beer’s sales go toward various community charities to help women and children.

She is first-ever president of the 28,000-barrels-per-year brewery, as the former leadership team consisted of managing partners and a chief financial officer, and she comes to the brewery with experience as the office manager at Central Massachusetts’ largest brewery, Tree House Brewing Co. in Charlton.

What sets the Central Mass. business community apart from the rest of the world? Pride, passion, connection, devotion, diversity, culture. Those are just a few incredible reasons and thoughts that come to mind quickly. As I work and grow in this community, I know that I will find so much more. This community continues to amaze me. I believe Worcester is setting the bar for the surrounding communities when it comes to all of those attributes, and that bar is set high.

Alfresco: I am an outdoors woman: I enjoy archery and fly fishing. I also have a 1970 Chevelle I enjoy taking to car shows all over Massachusetts.
