We want to congratulate two Dunkin’ mainstays on important upcoming developments in their professional lives.  John Costello, President of Global Marketing and Innovation, has announced that he will be retiring in mid-2016.  Costello, who joined Dunkin’ in 2009, will remain in his current position but will transition to a new, more strategic role focused largely on the evolution of the Company’s brands with a special emphasis on DBI’s international business beginning today.  In addition, it was announced this week that Vice President of Government Affairs, Cicerly Simpson will be leaving Dunkin’ as she has accepted the position of Executive Vice President for Government Affairs & Public Policy for the National Restaurant Association.  After seven years with Dunkin’, she will be leaving the company on May 13.  We wish them both much success and the best of luck moving forward.
