Co-founder and CEO, New Belgium Brewing

As the CEO of the third-largest craft brewer in the U.S.,Jordan is at the forefront of a beer movement that has swept the nation. Since launching in 1991 with about $150,000 in revenue that first year, she's grown the company into a $190 million operation. But Jordan has shown she’s in it for more than the beer--although her brewery makes some wildly popular ones like Fat Tire. As a B-Corporation, New Belgium is dedicated to being socially and environmentally responsible. The company is 100% employee owned and donates $1 to non-profits for every barrel it produces. Its brewery in Fort Collins, Colo., touts the state’s largest private solar array, and the company is rehabilitating a brownfield site for a new facility in Asheville, N.C.
