Each subsidiary of Sapporo Breweries, the parent company of Sleeman Breweries Ltd., is run by a member of Sapporo’s Japanese leadership team. Mike Minami assumes the role of President and CEO from predecessor Hiro Kitaoka.

An avid world traveller, Mike has also discovered a Canadian hobby that he enjoys. Mike fishes in rivers and lakes and can even be found in an ice fishing hut during the colder months.
