We noted some weeks back that congratulations are in order for a former Dunkin’ employee, but other news precluded us from getting to it sooner. Former northeast regional vice president for Dunkin’ Bill Bode has been promoted to the position of Chief Operations Officer at New Hampshire-based fitness franchise Planet Fitness. Elsewhere, we took note that Starbucks recently announced the promotion of senior vice president of finance for Americas Rachel Ruggeri to Chief Financial Officer to replace the retiring EVP and CFO Patrick Grismer. Grismer will stay on with the company as an adviser until May 2, 2021. We also saw that Starbucks is creating a $100 million fund aimed at investing in community development projects and small businesses in areas populated by black, indigenous and people of color.
