The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) announces today that David Veal will be leaving the association at the end of June 2018. David was Executive Director of the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE) from 2011 until 2017, overseeing a strong growth in their membership, activity and engagement in the coffee community. Latterly, he has been acting as Executive Ambassador for the SCA, working with the various partners of the association to promote specialty coffee at all stages of the value chain.
Said David, “I have been blessed and privileged to have served our speciality coffee community whilst travelling on a great journey both with SCAE and latterly with the fledgling SCA, and have made so many good friends along the way. Our association, and indeed our industry, is now entering a new and exciting phase and I wish all of my colleagues and friends great success in the coming months and years as they help shape the future of our coffee community. I will move on to pastures new, hopefully in the coffee industry, so I am sure that our paths will cross, both in the next few weeks, and in the future.”
David will attend World of Coffee in Amsterdam should anyone wish to say hello (and goodbye!).
