I am thrilled to join a company that brings a premium product to market, and has a brand with a rich European heritage that stands for quality, responsibility and innovation. It is a pleasure to join the Heineken USA organisation and to help continue to gain share in the American market."

At Molson, Blaustein expanded the international export presence of Molson's brand portfolio, including the successful launch of Molson brands in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
