How Did I Get Here: Chris Hansen

Wednesday, April 04, 2012
He's super friendly. Really.

Sun King’s policy from the start was to hire from its volunteer pool. But some jobs need to be filled by a specific person with a specific skill set. When it came time to start building Sun King’s delivery fleet, Chris Hansen was that person.

Chris grew up in the beer business, working for his parents’ distributorship, Bon Vivant Libations, from the age of 12. He went on to work in logistics for craft beer distributor Cavalier and got to know Clay and Dave when he would run kegs from the downtown Ram to the Noblesville location.

In July 2010 he was working for a mobility company (think Jazzy Carts) when Clay sent him a Facebook message asking him if he’d be interested in coming to work for Sun King. He said yes and immediately took the position of Logistics Manager, managing drivers and line cleaners, scheduling and routing deliveries, and preparing and receiving invoices. He also handles payroll for the brewery and is usually behind the wheel of a fork truck when new tanks arrive.

“Besides the beer,” Chris says that his favorite part of working at Sun King is, “getting to work with the people and in a great family atmosphere where everyone gets along well.”
