Wynne Odell is Co-founder and CEO of Odell Brewing Company in Fort Collins, CO.  Starting in 1989 with her husband, Doug, and sister-in-law, Corkie, the trio had no grand plans, but after five years of a draft-only format, bottles were introduced and rapid growth ensued.  Twenty-five years later, Odell Brewing Company ranks 34th in size among craft breweries in the United States.
Odell is a Colorado-centric company, with 65% of its sales coming from in-state. With the addition of Texas in 2014, it now distributes in 11 states. Doug, Wynne and Corkie, along with three of their children, still remain active at the brewery.
A culture of family and collaboration fosters a brewery full of beer-centric people. It is this passion for beer that inspires Odell Brewing to create quality, hand-crafted, innovative brews. As a regional craft brewery, Odell Brewing is also committed to serving the communities in which it distributes by sourcing local raw materials, and through its charitable giving program known as Odell Outreach.
Wynne, a CPA, received her MBA from the University of Washington. Prior to working with beer, she worked with Bank of America and Hewlett Packard. Wynne currently serves on the boards of the Colorado Brewer’s Guild, Fort Collins Downtown Development Authority, Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce and the Institute for Entrepreneurship at Colorado State University.
