Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Appoints Three New Directors Augmenting Board Depth, Expertise And Vision To Guide Future Growth

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR) (NASDAQ: GMCR), a leader in specialty coffee and single serve beverages with its innovative Keurig ® single cup brewing technology, today announced the appointment of three new Directors to its Board: John D. Hayes, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of American Express; Susan Saltzbart Kilsby, Senior Advisor to Credit Suisse AG; and Robert A. Steele, former Vice Chairman, Healthcare Strategy for The Proctor & Gamble Company. The appointments coincide with the retirement of two Board members, former President and CEO, Lawrence Blanford, and GMCR founder, Robert Stiller, who becomes Chairman Emeritus following his retirement from the Board.

Commenting on the new members, GMCR’s Chairman of the Board of Directors Norm Wesley said, “John, Susan and Rob are terrific individual leaders with prestigious careers and significant global experience. Each will be a tremendous asset to GMCR as we continue to drive single-serve beverage category expansion and pursue growth opportunities leveraging the strength of our Keurig ® brewing technology.”

Mr. Wesley continued, “Bob Stiller’s vision for GMCR has been unwavering and as a result of his foresight, GMCR experienced unprecedented growth as it successfully transitioned from a regionally recognized specialty coffee roaster to a leader in the emerging single-serve beverage category in North America. On behalf of many GMCR stakeholders, including our Board and our executive leadership and all our employees, we express our gratitude to Bob and we are very pleased that he will assume the newly created role of Chairman Emeritus.”

Mr. Stiller stated, “I believe the time is right to retire from the Board and pursue a variety of personal interests. I am confident that GMCR’s culture of innovation, the breadth and depth of our Board and leadership team, the determination of our employees and the incredible consumer enthusiasm for our brands will continue to drive value for all GMCR stakeholders. It has been the highlight of my business career to serve GMCR and I am enthusiastic to continue to do so in this new role.”
