Starbucks Coffee Company has appointed a new executive vice-president for supply chain and coffee operations (SCOO). Dorothy Kim, the current senior vice-president, Global Logistics & Procurement, will replace E.R. (Ted) Garcia, who is retiring after 10 years with Starbucks.

Kim will be responsible for the day-to-day activities of SCCO, which include the global strategic business management of manufacturing, engineering, purchasing, distribution, planning and transportation; supply chain integrated systems; inventory management and worldwide sourcing of coffee. She will report to CEO-designate Jim Donald.

Kim joined Starbucks in 1995, where she gained four years of retail planning and operations experience prior to transitioning to SCCO. She held the positions of vice president, SCCO Logistics, and vice president, SCCO Finance & Systems, before her promotion to senior vice president, Global Logistics & Procurement. Kim was instrumental in leading the development of Starbucks SCCO Systems Vision and Master Project Plan.

"Dorothy has been an important member of my team over the last five years," said Garcia. "I can say without hesitation that there is no one in the Supply Chain field more qualified, or ready, to lead this world-class team at Starbucks."
