Street, William M. 

William M. Street.

William M. Street, 79, passed away July 25, 2018 after a courageous multi-year battle against cancer. Born Sept. 23, 1938 in Louisville to Daniel Street (former president of Brown-Forman) and Frances (Woodruff) Street, Bill Street graduated from Princeton University, earned his MBA from Harvard University and worked at Brown-Forman his entire career, rising from a sales trainee when he joined the company in 1956 to president of the corporation when he retired in 2003. He also served on Brown-Forman’s board of directors for 40 years before retiring from it in 2011.

But this brief summary gives short shrift to the contributions of one of the most outstanding leaders of the country’s beverage alcohol industry and one of Louisville’s most prominent civic leaders.

Bill began his career with Brown-Forman in 1956 as a summer intern and started working on a full-time basis in 1963. He rose through the ranks of sales and marketing to executive management, becoming a vice president in 1977. In 1986, he assumed the post of president of Brown-Forman Beverage Company, responsible for the company’s U.S. beverage business, and was named chief executive officer of the Beverage Company in 1993. He was named CEO of Brown-Forman Beverages Worldwide, responsible for the company’s global beverage business, when that organization was formed in 1994.

Working closely with then-Brown-Forman Corporation Chairman and CEO Owsley Brown II, Bill, Owsley and other executives developed and implemented the company’s globalization strategy in the mid-1990s, affording Brown-Forman the opportunity to build its international business to encompass more than 170 countries around the globe. The success of this strategy has allowed Brown-Forman, one of the largest American-owned companies in the industry, to grow and thrive against much larger global competitors.

Bill served on the boards of Papa John’s International, Inc. and the Filson Historical Society. He was director emeritus of the Metropolitan YMCA of Greater Louisville and Louisville Collegiate School. He was former chairman of Greater Louisville Inc., former chairman of the board of Leadership Louisville, the Governor’s Scholars Program and the Kentucky Horse Racing Authority, a position he held from 2004 to 2008.

Bill was also an excellent mentor, and current Brown-Forman CEO Paul Varga had the good fortune of working closely with Bill and says: “Bill Street will be remembered fondly by us all as an enormously successful Brown-Forman president and board member, a luminary in the global spirits industry and a prominent Louisville civic leader. Most notably, however, he will be remembered as a gracious and good man who enriched the lives of so many people at our company and in our community. We will miss him dearly, and our thoughts are very much with his wife Lindy and his family on this sad occasion.”

Perhaps no greater testament to Bill’s character and leadership came from Owsley Brown II, who said when Bill retired from Brown-Forman in 2003:

“Bill Street is a paragon of leadership for corporate America. He has conducted himself with the utmost integrity as he constantly strived to meet the needs of Brown-Forman’s constituents – our shareholders, our management team, our partners, the communities where we work and, of course, our employees.

“Bill has never been one to shy away from getting all of us to face the hard truths of business. By challenging assumptions, asking the tough questions and by his willingness to listen and learn, Bill has helped create an environment where those around him thrived and developed into new leaders.

“Most importantly, for a generation, Bill has been at the heart of forging new corporate strategies and helping the company adapt to the ever-changing landscape by keeping our focus on building our brands and developing our people. As a result, he has been vitally important in sustaining our company’s growth and independence and setting the stage for our continued prosperity over the next decade.”

Always modest about his contributions, Bill wasn’t much for public recognition of his contributions. However, the Kentucky Distillers’ Association was very pleased when Bill agreed to be honored as an inductee into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame in September 2015. He was also named to the Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame in 2012 by Junior Achievement; was a 2004 recipient of Greater Louisville Inc.’s Gold Cup award for outstanding business and civic leadership and received the Spirit of Louisville award in 2003 from the YMCA of Greater Louisville.

Bill will be greatly missed by all those who knew him, as there is no finer example of a husband, father, grandfather, friend and business and civic leader than William M. Street.

Bill is survived by his wife, Lindy Barber Street; daughter, Woody Gardner; and stepchildren, Liz Quail (Brian), Bob Weldon (Maria), Sallie Talbott, Jennie Talbott (Jim), Kit Walden and Martha Lee Walden. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Ty, Warner, Amelia, Chloe, Sophia, Isabelle, Robert, Maggie, Jackson, Hunter and Tyler.

A celebration service to commemorate Bill’s life will be held at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 4 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 1206 Maple Lane, Anchorage, Kentucky. Visitation will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Aug. 3 in the Dan and Frances Street Learning Commons at Louisville Collegiate School. Please enter at the Ray Avenue entrance, where valet parking will be available.

Bill asks that your support be directed to: Louisville Collegiate School, 2427 Glenmary Ave., Louisville, KY 40204; Filson Club, 1310 S. Third St., Louisville, KY 40208; and Gilda’s Club Louisville, 633 Baxter Ave., Louisville, KY 40204, in lieu of flowers.
