Happy Birthday ACE!
On May 1, 2018, ACE celebrated our 27th birthday. As we inch our way closer to thirty, we could not help but look back and reflect on the past year.
Throughout 2017, we celebrated the retirement of Tim Cole after 26 years as President and the promotion of Ian Burns – with ACE since 1995 – to President. The transition culminated with a party at our Delaware Valley office in October. ACE family, friends, and customers joined us for lawn games, food trucks, a live band, and of course good beer.
In November, we won second place in the People’s Choice category at the ISA Houston Section’s annual chili cook off. A big thanks to Steve Cronauer, his wife Gris, Shawn Coughlan, and George Ikonomou for cooking the chili. Plus a special shout out to Gris and Cedrick Crosby, for cooking and delivering a second batch once the first ran out!
We wrapped up the year, with a fishing trip. ACE’s Mark LaVere, Sean Minderlein, Steve Monaghan, and Kati McLaughlin went trolling for striped bass off the New Jersey coast with longtime supplier Panelmatic East, Inc. When all was said and done, the group brought home seven striped bass.
With such great memories to look back on, we wanted to take this time to thank our customers and let you know how much we appreciate your continued support. Cheers to turning 27!
