“Under Troy’s leadership as chief financial officer for the past five years,
Starbucks has delivered an extraordinary experience to our customers as well
as exceptional operating performance, financial results and returns for our
shareholders,” said Starbucks chairman, president and ceo Howard Schultz.
“Troy’s strategic business and financial acumen, discipline and leadership
have been instrumental to our short- and long-term growth. As we continue to
expand to new markets and channels, his role as group president leading
Starbucks Global Business Services will be critical to ensuring the company’s
continued success.”

Alstead joined Starbucks in January 1992 when it was a privately held company
with just over 100 stores. Over the years, he has held numerous roles in
finance and general management for Starbucks, both domestic and international.
He has held finance positions of increasing responsibility, including
leadership of the corporate finance, accounting, tax, and treasury functions,
as well as leadership of global financial management, decision support,
planning, and business development for Starbucks operating units around the
world.

Alstead was one of the original members of the Starbucks International team,
contributing to the development of the international business from the
beginning. Beyond his finance roles, he led the operations and development of
the international business as senior vice president for Starbucks Coffee
International, and later led the company’s business in Europe, Middle East,
and Africa as interim president of that regional business unit. Alstead later
held the position of chief operating officer, Starbucks Greater China.
