The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf – the oldest and largest privately’held specialty premium coffee and tea retailer in the United States-announces the appointment of John Dawson as the brand’s new president and chief executive officer. He replaces Mel Elias, who will assume a position on the board of directors. They will work together to ensure a smooth transition. Elias has served as president and CEO since 2008, and has been with the company since the brand opened its first franchise stores in Singapore in 1996.
