    ALLENTOWN, PA, August 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Banko Beverage Company President and Chief Executive Officer Mary Ellen Racz has been recognized for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in marketing.

With many years of practiced experience in her field, Ms. Racz holds a unique set of qualifications that allow her to excel in her role with Banko Beverage Company, a family-owned beverage wholesaler that provides beer and malt beverages. The beer distributor, which celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2013, flies under the radar of many of its end users, and that is just fine by Ms. Racz. She likes that the company is relatively low-profile, even though many may be familiar with the company's slogan "Bank on Banko." "It doesn't matter if you order one case of beer or 100. We deliver to you every week," states Tom Lynch, Banko vice president and general manager.

Bringing in approximately 65 million in annual revenue, Banko Beverage Company is one of the largest distributors in the region, extending throughout Northeast Pennsylvania. They represent more than 30 breweries, from Miller to Yuengling. The owner of Yuengling, Dick Yuengling, credits Banko Beverage with expanding the brand. A great supporter of the Lehigh Valley area, the Banko family has its name on various hospital wings, high school and college athletic fields, and even a movie theater!

Banko will soon be poised for even more growth as it prepares to move from their home since the 1960's to a new, larger facility, which should help the company add volume. The new building will take Banko from 80,000 to 125,000 square feet, plus another 30 acres for additional expansion should it ever be needed.

Ms. Racz has worked with the company, as the president and chief executive officer, for nearly three and a half decades, and looks forward to the possibilities that the expansion will provide. A shining example of excellence in her field, she excels due to a combination of her prior industry experiences and her educational background, which includes a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a Bachelor of Science in management and marketing from Purdue University. She was recently inducted into Worldwide Branding and also maintains affiliation with the National Beer Wholesalers Association, the Craft Brewers Association, Malt Beverage Distributor's Association and the Pennsylvania Beer Alliance. Looking ahead, Ms. Racz plans to prepare for the expansion and make life at the company even more enjoyable for her employees.
