David Hamel

General manager of operations, Western Canada
Molson Coors

David Hamel is general manager of operations in Western Canada for Molson Coors Beverage Co. In this role, he has accountability for the Fraser Valley Brewery in Chilliwack. He also has accountability for the distribution operations in all four provinces in Western Canada and Mainland Beverage Distribution for the Six Pints portfolio of craft beer in B.C.

GREATEST SUCCESS: Seeing people I’ve worked with to help them develop getting promoted in roles with greater responsibilities.
LAST MEAL: Although I consider myself a foodie, the people sitting at the table would be more important than the menu.
BEVERAGE OF CHOICE: Beer by trade! Molson Canadian is my go-to, but I always choose based on my meal the best pairing.
