Andrew Thomas ’91 started at Heineken in 1995 in market research. In 1997, I moved to the operations area and worked on an Internet-based planning system we were developing called HOPS (Heineken Operational Planning System). I’ve been fortunate to travel and do business in over 50 countries. It really was nothing I could ever have planned. My time overseas allowed me to experience business and culture in a way I never could have imagined. In fact, while I didn’t envision having an international business career, I am grateful I seized every opportunity for growth. When Heineken International went through a global reorganization, I was given this great opportunity to lead Heineken U.S.A.
