News Release: A message from Ron Hinson, S&D Coffee Chairman, President and CEO

Concord, N.C. — As many of you know, S&D’s chairman emeritus, Roy Davis, passed away several months ago, handing over the reins to me. Having worked for S&D for nearly 35 years and very closely with Roy on many key issues, I will draw from his wisdom and guidance as I assume responsibility for S&D’s future as chairman of the board, president and CEO.

While all of us at S&D miss Roy immensely, we are also excited about what this future holds. You may notice some changes in terms of how we are structured and how we market ourselves, but some things will never change. We are dedicated to expanding the reputation we’ve earned for producing and delivering high-quality products and services, and committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in how we do business.

Our website is a primary vehicle for providing critical information and education to our customers. We are in the process of updating the site to reflect the S&D of 2012 and beyond.

I invite all of you to stay tuned to learn more about changes we will be making to better serve your needs as we begin this new day for S&D.

Sincerely,

Ron Hinson
Chairman, President and CEO
