Dunkin’ Brands names new finance chief


The parent company of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins has ended its hunt for a new chief financial officer.

Following a comprehensive search for a permanent CFO, Dunkin’ Brands has promoted Kate Jaspon to the position, effective June 5, 2017. Jaspon was appointed the company’s interim CFO when Paul Carbone left the position in April to become COO at a specialty retail chain. She will report directly to Dunkin' Brands' CEO Nigel Travis.

In her role as CFO, Jaspon will be responsible for accounting, corporate tax, investor relations and competitive intelligence. This is in addition to her current responsibilities for global financial planning and analysis, business analytics, debt and cash management, electronic payments and insurance.

Jaspon joined Dunkin’ Brands in 2015, as assistant controller. She was later promoted to VP, controller and corporate treasurer, and has held her current title since 2014.

"Kate has made significant contributions to our organization and she has helped lead us through a number of important transactions, including our IPO and follow-on equity offerings, securitization and several debt restructuring, and has overseen the implementation of our enterprise risk management program,” Travis said. “With her thorough knowledge of our business, her background in financial planning, analysis and reporting, as well as her accounting and treasury management skills, Kate will be critical to help us achieve both short- and long-term goals.”
