Dick, son of company founders Dick Bridges, Sr. and Elizabeth Bridges, began working for the Company in 1959 during summer breaks from school. When he graduated Wofford College in 1966 he began full time employment as the office and warehouse manager. Upon his Father’s passing in 1968 he assumed leadership of the Company along with his Mother and within a few years was named President and CEO.
During his career he served on various civic and industry boards and committees including the Anheuser-Busch Wholesaler Panel and chairman of the SC Beer Wholesalers Association, York Technical College Foundation, York County Red Cross, the Combined Arts Fund, and the Rock Hill Tax/Tourism Commission.
Today Dick is semi-retired and enjoys his old cars, boating, and playing a little golf.
