WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Kenneth A. May has joined Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. as president and chief operating officer. Mr. May will report to James H. Morgan, chief executive officer, and will be responsible for all of the company’s operating segments. Mr. May has more than 25 years of operational, retail, supply chain and brand experience, and most recently was president of ES3, L.L.C., a logistics company. Earlier, he spent many years at FedEx, including as senior vice-president of U.S. operations for FedEx Express, and president and c.e.o. of FedEx Kinko’s Office and Print Centers. He is a former board member of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc. and was national chairman of the board of trustees for the March of Dimes in 2010. “Krispy Kreme is a special place to work, and we could not be more excited about having an experienced and natural corporate leader like Ken May join our team,” Mr. Morgan said. “There was considerable interest in this opportunity, and it was critical that we seek out someone with a unique combination of big brand experience, retail customer engagement, proficiency in delivering quality products and services, an understanding of complex logistical operations, and familiarity with both domestic and international operations.”
