Jon Marco

Executive Vice President
Success comes from good old fashioned hard work. Those who are empowered rather than ordered to do so, work hardest.

Jon Marco’s path to Vice President at Alpha Brewing Operations began in 1989 having just ended his collegiate football career and earning a BA in Business Administration at the University of Nebraska. Jon walked-on to play for the Huskers and through his fire and tenacity became a starting outside linebacker and scholarship athlete by his junior season. The work ethic and integrity developed under great mentors like Coach Tom Osborne has carried Jon through his professional career. For 8 years Jon has put water treatment, bottling and packaging equipment all over the world. His travels included frequent stops in Central America, Africa and Nepal. Jon’s extensive experience in tap-house management and beverage packaging equipment manufacturing have been a recipe for his rapid success in the craft brew industry.

“I love working with craft brewers and Alpha Brewing Operations gives me that opportunity. When you love what you do and who you do it for and who you do it with, that’s unbeatable.”

When not at work Jon’s wife keeps him busy. They recently had their first child and there’s always plenty to do around the acreage. Jon put his DIY skills to work rebuilding his 1909 homestead that was originally crafted for 60 cents/day. He rebuilt the home, preserved the barn and turned a three-car garage into a home for his family of six English Setters (“the herd”). For Jon there’s no place he’d rather be than on the farm with his dogs, his lovely wife and their son.
