Meet the Team
Favorite Event: The Hard Cider Run
Co-founder. Courtney is aiming to run 50 marathons before she turns 50. She will also complete the World Marathon Majors (she is halfway there). Courtney works with all of our venues, farmers, and brewers, connecting, networking and forming each relationship. When she isn’t networking, she is shaping our company culture and the culture of our events. Outside of the office/farm/cidery, she loves a good beer, her dog Millie and working out.
Favorite Event: The Great Pumpkin Run
Co-founder. Old. Semi-funny. These are the words he uses to describe himself. Beyond making fun of himself, Erik enjoys working out, cooking, dining out when he is feeling lazy, trying new beers, and drinking hot, coffee (black, of course). In the office, Erik heads up marketing, most web-related duties, and purchasing.
Wisconsin Native. Fun-haver. Dad joke (Fran joke) advocate. Fran majored in Marketing at Viterbo University (La Crosse, WI). After graduating, she decided to move to the deep-dish capital. Some of Frans hobbies include working out, milking cows, drinking coffee, traveling, and socializing with friends and family. During the fall and winter seasons you can find her on the slopes, shredding the gnar, and watching the greatest team known to man: THE GREEN BAY PACKERS.
My name is Jordan Smith. I recently graduated from Michigan State University with a major in Marketing. I was born and raised in the midwest but love traveling to new places any chance I can get. In my spare time, I enjoy petting dogs, eating pizza, and having a beer with friends.
Fun fact: I am the daughter of two entrepreneur parents.
My name is Madison Randolph. I attend DePaul University and am majoring in public relations with a minor in event planning. I am an avid iced coffee drinker all year round and am a firm believer that donuts are the best breakfast meal. I love spending time with my talkative (rather large) cats, Chip and Toby. My favorite way to spend a morning, or honestly any time of day, is at Lake Michigan.
Millie the Office Manager
Favorite Event: Sleeping. She’s lazy.
Two eyes. Two ears. A chin. A mouth. Four legs. Four kneecaps. Three hip joints. One bark. A lot of sleep. I just described to you Millie, the office dog. Millie enjoys hanging out at the office with us almost every day. Sun bathing as the light shines in through the windows is a favorite pastime of hers, always working on that tan! Don’t be too surprised if she barks when you visit, she just wants you to know she’s there and needs attention.
My name is Zoe and I attend Loyola Chicago, majoring in Public Relations and Advertising. I love spending time in Lincoln Park with my Labradoodle, Blue, and going to the movies often with friends. I know every word to the entire Pitch Perfect series and I was even able to participate as an extra in Pitch Perfect 3. Fun fact: Muhammad Ali kissed me on the cheek when I was 8!
