The newly-formed JDE Peet’s is getting a new CFO. Scott Gray takes over Feb. 24 to help lead the coffee company resulting from the merger of European bean biggie Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) and Peet’s, founded in Berkeley, California in 1966.

The announcement was made Wednesday by JDE Peet’s parent, Luxembourg-based JAB Holding Company, which also named four new directors for the company from major players in food, beverage and finance: Denis Hennequin, Stuart MacFarlane, Aileen Richards and Luc Vandevelde.
