MGP Ingredients, Inc., a leading supplier of distilled spirits, branded spirits and food ingredient solutions, is pleased to announce the promotion of Amel Pasagic to the newly created position of Chief Commercial Officer, effective today. As Chief Commercial Officer, Pasagic will be responsible for all commercial activities across MGP’s three business segments.

Pasagic will leverage business intelligence and insights gained while serving as MGP’s Chief Information Officer, where he built a data-driven culture and applied predictive data insights across MGP locations in Kansas, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, Mexico, and Northern Ireland.

“Amel’s wealth of experience and his unique strategic view of our business will be critical in driving the next phase of growth for MGP,” said David Bratcher, MGP President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are fortunate to have Amel assume this new role and look forward to his leadership as we continue to leverage the solid foundation we have established and seize the significant opportunities that remain ahead of us.”

Pasagic joined MGP as Vice President, Information Technology, when the company acquired Luxco, Inc. and its affiliated companies in April 2021. He was promoted to the newly created role of Chief Information Officer for MGP in July that year. Prior to the acquisition, he served in a variety of IT leadership roles with increasing responsibility during his 10 years with Luxco. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Webster University.
