Swiss Water announces changes to board of directors
July 22, 2020, Vancouver, B.C. – Donald Tringali has been elected to the board of directors of British Columbia-based Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Inc.
He is the founder and chief executive officer of Augusta Advisory Group, a U.S.-based boutique financial and business consulting firm providing a full range of executive, operations and corporate advisory services to leading public and private companies in a wide array of industries.
Tringali brings more than 30 years of experience as a business lawyer, C-level executive, independent corporate director and board advisor to his new role. He holds a BA in Economics from UCLA and a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School.
Swiss Water also announced that Diane Fulton has been elected interim chair of the board of directors.
It is the board’s intention to nominate Tringali as chair within approximately six months. In light of COVID-19 travel restrictions which currently prevent Tringali from entering Canada and also to allow him a period of time to better familiarize himself with the company, the management and board of Swiss Water determined that an orderly transition would be best accomplished by having Fulton, a Vancouver resident and long-serving board member, act as interim chair.
Swiss Water is a leading specialty coffee company and a premium green coffee decaffeinator which employs the proprietary SWISS WATER® Process to decaffeinate green coffee without the use of chemical solvents. The company also owns Seaforth Supply Chain Solutions, a green coffee handling and storage business. Both businesses are located in the cities of Burnaby and Delta, B.C.
