Did You Know... about the ISBT?
Logo: First used in 2008.

ISBT: In 2009, ISBT contracted with Madeleine Crouch & Co. (MCC) for outsourced administrative work, with Casey Conway as the original account manager. Don Dinnerville is the current Senior Account Manager from MCC and Carol Wilbur is the account manager supporting the Beverage Institute and other ISBT activities.

Milestone: Harry Korab (Mr. ISBT), ISBT’s first Executive Director, passed away in 2009. Harry served as secretary/ treasurer of the SSDT until he became the Executive Director, totaling 40 years of service to the Society. He received a Lifetime Achievement award to the Hall of Fame from Beverage Industry magazine. The Society grew from 47 members to over 1,000 members by the time he retired! He was often kidded about his likeness to Tip O’Neil, the long-time Speaker of the House. Harry was with the ABCB at the start of the SSDT and retired from the NSDA in 1985.
