* From a press release…

The Associated Beer Distributors of Illinois (ABDI) announced that the Board of Directors has unanimously elected Robert L. Myers Jr. as President effective January 2, 2014. Myers succeeds ABDI’s President Bill Olson who retired January 1, 2014, after twenty-nine (29) years of service to ABDI.

“After a thorough and deliberate selection process, the Board of Directors is delighted that Bob will serve as chief staff officer of ABDI,” said Gene McEnery, Chair of the Board of Directors. “Bob has a thorough understanding of the needs of our distributor members and his legislative contacts will be invaluable. I have no doubt that he is the right person to lead ABDI as ABDI enters its 76th year.”
Myers has worked for ABDI for 20 years, most recently as Vice President of Government Relations, where he oversaw all aspects of ABDI’s legislative initiatives.

“I am honored that the Board of Directors chose me to follow in the footsteps of Bill Olson,” said Bob Myers. “I am also thrilled that I will have the ability to rely on Bill’s counsel over the coming year as he is an exceptional executive, leader, role model and friend.”

    “…as a Child Actor, he is best known as the silly, yet thoughtful ‘Timmy Thomas’ whose winning smile and jump shot were matched with his observations of life. His teen years were trying, first with a failed solo album titled ‘I Am NOT Timmy, So Stop Asking!’ and a failed invention of a skateboard with a 5th wheel. After numerous failed sitcom pilots, he left Hollywood and now sells pet insurance in his hometown of Greenwater, Arkansas, in a little storefront next to the Ben Franklin 5 and Dime and ‘Curley’s Barber Shop and Chicken Shack’ he lives with his pet cat ‘Sally Field’ just off the County Line Road.”

    If convicted, he may serve up to 17 minutes in a local holding cell.”
