Our Story

In 1946, G. Louis Vitale risked everything he had to found G&M Distributors, Inc. His first supplier was the Schlitz Brewery of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Vitale named the company after his family “G” (Guy) and “M” (Marguerite, Margot, Mike, and Marcia). After its humble beginnings in Galesburg, Illinois the company expanded into various beverages and bottling companies. The company remains headquartered in Galesburg and now represents over 30 suppliers including Anheuser-Busch, The Gallo Family, PepsiCo, Pabst Brewing, and others. Guy L. Vitale, Jr. served as the company’s general manager from 1973 – 2010. He returned to the family business following time in the U.S. Peace Corps (Equador). Guy also spent time in St. Louis, MO as a history teacher and football coach, while obtaining a Masters in Business Administration from Washington University. Guy was well known for G&M in the beverage industry and community. He also had a reputation as a community servant. He donated his time and money to numerous local charities. Adam G. Vitale is the company’s current President. He returned to the Galesburg area in January 2008. He has industry experience with Republic-National Distributing Co. of Washington, DC. Additionally, Adam obtained his Masters in Business Administration from Pepperdine University. The company services a twenty-four county region in western Illinois and remains family owned. G&M is still true to its core values of taking care of its family of employees. The company continues to be an integral part of its community and consistently gives back. We’re proud of our family of employees, our history, and our community.

As many of you know, Young Professionals Network hosted a Dress for success Drive last month. The local Knox County IL CEO Program students were able to pick out professional clothing for class and to wear at future professional businesses meetings. Tessa Jones and I taught the class and afterward, all students were able to pick up some great business casual outfits! Special shout out to Tessa Jones, Ashley Burton, Cameron Line, Rowan G. Williamson, Pam Gaither, Abbie Smith, G & M Distributors, Inc. , and other anonymous donors/volunteers for helping with this drive. All donations then went to Safe Harbor or Community Treasures in Galesburg. Thank you so much for helping us with our first philanthropy initiative!
